Nanaimo Unitarian Shelter

COVID19 Update: We continue to be open 5:30pm - 7:00am. We expect to reduce our capacity from 24 beds to accommodate a measure of social distancing. Visits by volunteers, contractors, tours, suppliers and other visitors are suspended until further notice. Only staff, guests, VIHA staff or RCMP will be welcome on site. We have enhanced sanitization and hygiene activities and will provide hygiene and social-distancing information to our guests at every opportunity. We have acquired supplies to make our own hand sanitizers for our own use and to distribute to guests. We continue to offer free showers at Caledonia Park on behalf of the City of Nanaimo... monitoring for potential for change in service.


Our shelter (previously only open in winter) remains open continuously until at least March 31, 2020, thanks to funding from BC Housing.

Providing respite from the streets, two light meals, laundry service and other supports.

A new Outreach Program launches in January 2020.
