The homeless shelter for the Salvation Army in Regina is near capacity during this bitterly cold weather.
Major Wayne McDonough is the executive director of the Waterston Centre in Regina.
He says no one has been turned away during the cold snap.
He says “The last week, our occupancy has been running 95 to 100 percent.
He says “We haven’t had to turn anyone away yet, but it’s right at the borderline”
Major McDonough says resources are adequate but some overflow mats have had to be put to use.
He says winter clothing like toques, gloves, and scarves are welcome from the public to help the homeless.
He says the city of Regina cold weather strategy is designed to ensure there is no one left outside in this weather.
