Friday April 15, 2011 of 24 hour Soccer Marathon to save New Fountain shelter at Vancouver Art Gallery

Funding for New Fountain Shelter will not be continued beyond April 30th, after which time it would be forced to close, putting people back on the streets!

A bit about the New Fountain Shelter:

Opened at Christmas in 2008, the New Fountain Shelter, funded for only 27 beds, regularly sleeps close to 40 people night after night. In addition to providing a temporary shelter for Vancouver’s homeless the New Fountain has connected over 300 people to safe, permanent housing and works hard to connect people to the medical and social services they need.

You can make a difference by emailing or phoning the mayor of Vancouver, the provincial government, BC Housing, or your federal government representative and tell them you feel housing for the homeless is important and necessary!
