Richmond House Emergency Shelter
The Richmond House Emergency Shelter, located at 12040 Horseshoe Way, offers 30 year round beds and 15 winter beds for men and women, with options for couples. Pets are also welcome. The shelter is operated by the Salvation Army, Richmond and is the result of a partnership between the City of Richmond, The Salvation Army and BC Housing. Visit Richmond House Emergency Shelter for more information.
The City has two winter weather warming centres in place; new in winter 2022-2023, one in the City Centre and the other, in its second year of operations, in the Steveston area. City staff and warming centre operators work with community partners to ensure those in need are aware of these resources and are supported during periods of extreme cold. Both warming centres are activated to provide overnight shelter from the elements during periods of extreme cold when the health of people who shelter outside may be threatened. The warming centres provide individuals experiencing homelessness a warm place to rest and warm drinks, snacks and meals. Both warming centres will close for the season on March 31, 2023.
