Current Supports

Trinity United ChurchPort Coquitlam already has a number of support services for the homeless. Outreach services are provided by the Hope for Freedom Society and the Share Food Bank Depot at Trinity United Church. Temporary shelter services are provided through the Cold Wet Weather Mat Program (which runs November to March) which buses homeless individuals to temporary shelters at churches which then provide mats and blankets, dinner, breakfast, and a bag lunch the next day, and transportation back to a muster point; and the Extreme Weather Response Shelter, operated at Trinity United Church during exceptionally inclement weather. There are no year-round shelters. Food banks are operated by Share Family and Community Services Society, Northside Foursquare Church, and the Single Parents Food Bank; and meal programs are provided by Northside Foursquare Church, Trinity United Church, and A Warm Place for Women in Aggie Park. These three organizations also provide clothing and shoes for people needing them. Other services include Trinity United Church’s supportive services.
