Shelter Services

DEWC provides overnight shelter services for women who are homeless, hard-to-house, at risk of homelessness or at risk of violence. Our 3 low-barrier shelters provide over 100 beds every night and drop-in services throughout the day, providing hot meals, showers, activities, and support programs. All three shelters are open 7 days a week during the following times: 

  • Emergency Shelter: 412 East Cordova St. (24 hours) 
  • Warming and Respite Space: 398 Powell St. (2:30pm – 9am) 
  • Overflow Shelter: 265 East Hastings St. (24 hours) 

Our low-barrier system accommodates women with severe mental health and addiction issues. Many of these women have been rejected by other shelters. As the focus is harm-reduction, women will not be turned away.
