Warming Room Impact


Warming Room Impact

Over the past four months St. Andrew’s has partnered with Greenwood Coalition and Northumberland County to operate a Warming Room over the winter months. The Warming Room operated out of two different locations: Columbus Community Centre (nights) and the Lions Community Centre (days). 

Over the course of the project upwards of twenty individuals were often in the facility seeking refuge from the cold. With the additional restrictions on gathering, workplace closures and physical distancing requirements due to Covid-19 the operation of the Warming Rooms were essential and had a direct, positive impact on those who accessed its services.

We are thankful to have been approached to participate in this project and for the expertise and insight of our community partners. Beyond St. Andrew’s, Greenwood Coalition and Northumberland County, many other community agencies, businesses, and individuals supported the operation of these two spaces. Demonstrating that as a community we can co-ordinate with one another for positive change.
