Description & Services
Public Comments ***Extreme cold weather alert - Starting immediately, the Timmins Native Friendship Centre at 179 Kirby Ave will open its doors in the evenings after 5:30 pm to serve as a warming shelter - Living Space is playing an important role in bringing services to people, but is challenged by some physical constraints that do not allow it to effectively act as a warming shelter during cold weather periods. As such, its staff and services will be shifted over to the Timmins Native Friendship Centre on nights of cold weather alerts. - City of Timmins News Release, 11 Jan 2019*** 
Living Space is open to provide emergency accommodation and support for those who were relying upon the Good Samaritan Inn, which burned down on October 24, 2018. The Homeless Coalition of Timmins will organize support if the Living Space is unable.
