A message from our Executive Director:

It has become necessary to adjust Waterston Centre’s services during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is with great concern for its residents, clients, employees and the greater community that The Salvation Army Waterston Centre is finding it necessary to take the following actions to do its part to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

1. We are limiting new clients( residents) into our private rooms.  Those who are admitted are isolated for 14 days.

2. The dorm shelter is now closed as it is not possible for us to meet public health COVID-19 standards in a dorm setting.

3.  Long-term dorm shelter clients were provided the opportunity to move into vacant private rooms on the second floor

4. We are unable to accommodate gatherings in our program lounge. The program lounge is now closed to public access.

5. The main front-door will be locked at all times and monitored by our residential workers.

6. We are very concerned about the impact on our shelter client group and will continue to work with the Ministry of Social Services to help find alternative lodging.

Waterston Centre continues to house 99 residents in private suites and apartments and does not anticipate needing to discontinue that service. We believe that we can continue providing services to these residents for an extended period of time.

Thank you for your understanding and please pray for our communities
