Present services will be maintained
The Toronto Disaster Relief Committee (TDRC) and the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty (OCAP) had called a public meeting about the need for All Saints Church to leave their drop-in/day shelter open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. weekdays. All Saints has now agreed to leave the service open weekdays until late summer.
While the dispute about the need for All Saints to continue as a drop-in/day shelter is not over, TDRC and OCAP have decided to cancel the public meeting regarding the future of All Saints Church.
“The decision to keep the All Saints drop-in/day shelter open weekdays is a relief to homeless and poor people in downtown Toronto,” said Beric German of the TDRC. “Unfortunately, we still don’t know the future of this vital service after the summer months. TDRC and OCAP will have to remain vigilant.”
