Cold weather alert…
Winter is approaching and we are gearing up for
Extreme Weather. This year, Cyrus Centre has been asked by BC Housing to head up the effort in Abbotsford. We will be coordinating the local response between November 2016 and March 2017.
At the request of BC Housing,I am asking
if there are any churches willing to provide space for
mats,and volunteers,between November 1, 2016, and March 31, 2017. If your church would be willing to provide some coverage during the Extreme Weather Response, please let me know by Tuesday, October 4, 2016,at the latest.
The Salvation Army has committed to provide 24 adult (male or female) Extreme Weather beds, Abbotsford Community Services
is committed to providing 10 adult (female) beds in the month of December, and Cyrus Centre will provide 10 (male or female) youth beds, for ages 24 & under, along with a warming center.
Cyrus Centre will be responsible to activate the Extreme Weather Alert (make the call
when the weather dictates) and notify you of activation and deactivation of the Response.
Let’s keep people safe and warm this winter!
