Winter Warming Centres:
In collaboration with the Durham Region Health Department and homelessness support agencies across our community, Durham Region implements a Winter Warming Plan to support unsheltered residents over the winter. The Durham Region Health Department issues Extreme Cold Weather Alerts when temperatures are forecasted to reach -15 degrees Celsius or colder, and/ or when the wind chill is forecasted to reach -20 degree Celsius or colder. When this alert is initiated, all housing-focused emergency shelters expand their services by adding additional mats/ cots and safe spaces. This can include utilizing hotel accommodations, if necessary, to ensure that no individual is denied shelter from the elements. Shelters also remain open during the day to accommodate individuals seeking warmth and shelter.
