Peel Family Shelter
One night, as William Booth, Founder of The Salvation Army, travelled through the streets of London, England, he was surprised to see homeless men huddled under a bridge. In the morning he instructed his son, Bramwell, to “Do something.” And, with that, The Salvation Army’s work in shelters for people experiencing homelessness began.
In Canada, The Salvation Army opened rescue homes and shelters in 1886. Today we operate more than 50 emergency shelters across Canada & Bermuda and provide 5,500 emergency shelter, transitional and supportive housing beds each night for men, women, youth and families experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. The Salvation Army also provides additional extreme weather response beds during the winter months.
