Out Of the Cold Program: YWCA Carole Anne’s Place

SI Hamilton-Burlington provides financial support  to the Carol Anne’s Place  program.

“YWCA Carole Anne’s Place is a low-barrier overnight drop-in centre that offers women a safe, warm place to rest when shelters are full, during Hamilton’s coldest winter months. Services like Carole Anne’s Place are critical as emergency shelters and transitional housing programs for women in Hamilton are consistently full and even operating at overcapacity. In addition to providing a safe place to sleep, Carole Anne’s Place also provides access to withdrawal management services, meals, shelter placement assistance, and winter clothing to women who would otherwise be at risk of freezing to death outside on the coldest nights of the year”.
