Unitarian Fellowship to Help Homeless


First Unitarian Fellowship
Provides Emergency Shelter


This winter the 50 strong congregation of the First Unitarian Fellowship on Townsite Rd. will be providing shelter for up to 10 needy people.

With funding provided by the Ministry of BC Housing the fellowship will provide sleeping mats, pillows and blankets as well as hot soup and beverages in the evening and likely a hot cereal breakfast.

The shelter will only be open when city and welfare officials determine that weather conditions warrant. It is expected that with the snow and cold predicted the shelter will be opened within this coming week.

You can visit the groups website by using this Nanaimo Info LINK.

Comment: Perhaps if the other churches in the City and the Province were to be more engaged with their communities the whole issue of homelessness could be addressed without all the government involvement. Of course society does seem to object when Christian groups try to help since they always seem to have some hidden agenda, like getting people to acknowledge God.
