The new emergency shelter at 12040 Horseshoe Way offers 36 beds for men and women, with options for couples. The shelter is the result of a partnership between the City of Richmond, the Salvation Army, and BC Housing, and delivers much needed shelter spaces in Richmond. The facility also meets an immediate need for drop-in shelter spaces for women.
The new shelter was built to replace the former Salvation Army men’s shelter on Shell Road, which offered 10 beds for men only.Project partners
