The City of Windsor, along with a variety of community agencies, has opened a day program at Windsor Water World for homeless residents.

“With places like libraries and community centres closed due to COVID-19, we know our homeless residents are having trouble finding a safe place to go during the day while adhering to directives for social distancing,” said City of Windsor Community Development & Health Services Commissioner Jelena Payne. “By partnering with some great agencies, we’re able to provide a safe, clean location and personal supports to help everyone get through this pandemic.”

Windsor Water World will run the day program 9am to 7pm daily.

Support agencies on site include Canadian Mental Health Association, Family Services Windsor-Essex Street Outreach Team and the CommUnity Partnership.

Light refreshments and activities are also offered, while respecting physical distancing requirements.
