Emergency Shelter Services

Emergency shelters provide lodging and personal needs to homeless people on a short term basis. Emergency shelter services are used by individuals in crisis, needing temporary housing and support. Residents of an emergency shelter may or may not be recipients of social assistance. Residents of an emergency shelter may be eligible to receive such benefits as a personal needs allowance, drug card and other support services while residing in the shelter.  Learn more about the County of Simcoe's Emergency Shelter Standards.
