The New Fountain Shelter was opened as part of the Provincial Government and City of Vancouver’s Heat Shelter initiative. Operating nightly from 7pm-9am, the shelter provides beds for 50-60 homeless individuals every night as well as dinner and breakfast.

The New Fountain is a low-barrier shelter that grants beds to individuals who are often rejected elsewhere, whether because they are actively addicted, have pets, have carts or belongings that require storage, or fare poorly in institutional settings.

The shelter is staffed 24/7 by PHS employees who work continuously to help residents find longer-term, more stable housing.

The New Fountain Shelter has moved to its new location at 356 E Hastings. More details to be announced soon.
