Out of the Cold Fredericton

$5,065 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 65 people in 19 days
To help respond to the rise in street homelessness in Fredericton, the Community Action Group on Homelessness (CAGH) has been working with local government, community groups and churches to establish an Out of the Cold (OOTC) Shelter.

The Out of the Cold model is a community-based, volunteer-supported model that provides low-barrier shelter for individuals to spend the night.  Through the collective efforts of a number of agencies and individuals, Fredericton’s Out of the Cold will open its door on Thursday night (November 29) to upwards of 20 individuals. The OOTC will be open nightly from 8:00 pm to 7:30 am for the next 20 weeks.

The Shelter location has been generously provided by the Anglican Diocese of Fredericton which has temporarily extended use of Bishop Court at 791 Brunswick Street for this effort.

OOTC will be seeking donations of basic items; such as, underwear, socks, toiletries, laundry soap, snack goods, and cleaning supplies. United Way of Central New Brunswick will be collecting donation to help ensure the OOTC has everything they need to provide a safe, positive and inclusive space for participants. Donations will be used to help purchase items for the shelter and ensure consistent staffing.

If you would to receive a tax receipt for your donations, please contact us for the link and select "Out of the Cold Fredericton" Fund.

In an effort to deal with on-street homelessness in Fredericton, City Council has voted to suspend applicable municipal bylaws related to Bishops Court at 791 Brunswick Street to allow for the operation of an overnight shelter for a maximum of 20 occupants from 8 pm to 7:30 am until December 13, 2019, subject to indemnification of Council by the Province of New Brunswick. This will allow the shelter to open and allow the Planning Advisory Committee process for a temporary use variance to proceed.

Hi everyone,

We can't thank you enough for the support we have received for the Out of the Cold Shelter. Unfortunately, the opening of the shelter has been delayed due to zoning issues with Bishop House. If you still wish to contribute, all funds collected will be donated to an Out of the Cold Shelter in Fredericton once it opens.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Katie Beers at katie@unitedwaycentral.com
