JustCity actively loves the underloved. It oversees three outreach sites in Winnipeg’s core neighbourhoods – Oak Table Inc., West Broadway Community Ministry, and St. Matthews Maryland Community Ministry. Each location serves people living with addictions, people experiencing homelessness, and people shunned by others based on race, income and sexual orientation. Services include daily meals, art, senior’s programs, haircuts, showers, laundry, toiletries, clean undergarments and emergency beds on the coldest nights of winter.
On nights below -10 C from January through March, Just a Warm Sleep invites people experiencing homelessness into the basement of Augustine United Church to get a safe, warm sleep and toiletry kit. This program is run by volunteers but supports up to 25 people experiencing homelessness nightly.
