Extreme Weather Shelter

Together with the Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group and funded by BC Housing, Trinity United Church offers emergency hospitality of overnight shelter and meals to those in need.

When: Between November 1, 2019 and March 31, 2020 (as Emergency Alerts are declared.)

Where: Here at the church, 2211 Prairie Ave @ Shaughnessy St in Port Coquitlam.

How can I help:

  • volunteer for an evening or morning shift
  • help monitor our grocery supplies
  • help ensure bedding and blankets are laundered
  • make a financial contribution to Trinity United Church

Volunteer Shifts:

  • evening shift: 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm - 2 volunteers per shift
  • morning shift: 5:30 am to 7:30 am - 3 volunteers per shift

When temperatures drop below zero, the emergency weather shelter is opened, which makes mats available, along with a hot meal and breakfast for people who can’t get into the shelter at 3030 Gordon Ave. because it is full. Please contact the church office to volunteer or for more information.
