GivingTuesday Victoria

Port Alberni Shelter Society

To celebrate Giving Tuesday will will be offering coffee and treats to people in need. We will also offer free used clothing, and assistance to help people connect to the resources that can help them in our community. The Port Alberni Shelter is a non-profit society that was established in 1972 to meet the needs of people who require immediate shelter in the Port Alberni area. We operate 24 hours per day and are open 365 days per year and our current facility usually remains at full capacity. We provide emergency shelter, transitional housing and over 37,380 meals annually for persons experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless. This includes people experiencing a personal crisis, persons re-entering the community after treatment or incarceration, or people who need a hot meal, shower and a warm bed.
