A message from our Executive Director:
Waterston Ministries, which includes Waterston Centre, Waterston House, Kate's Place and Gemma House, continues to provide services to men, women and young girls during the pandemic. Like many other community services, it has been necessary for us to scale down some of what we do. We are concerned about the current wave of Covid19 and are monitoring this closely.
The twelve (12) bed emergency shelter portion of Waterston Centre is restricted due to an inability to provide safe distancing practices. We currently have seven (7) of the twelve (12) beds set aside in the dorm that can be accessed through direct referral from the Ministry of Social Services, Mobile Crisis or other government agencies. The remainder of beds are out of service.
Walk-in applications are not possible. Certain private rooms have also been set aside for emergent referrals. The re-opening date for the emergency shelter has not be set and we do not anticipate this to be any time soon. Plans made will be in alignment with provincial health directives and our ability to stay within those guidelines.
Thank you for your understanding and please pray for our communities
Major Wayne McDonough
