It's Time Winnipeg!
For the last 45 years Main Street Project has provided a safe place for people in Winnipeg living with addictions, homelessness, and mental illness. Every night Main Street Project takes care of 85 people in only 2100 square feet at its shelter at 75 Martha Street.
Recognizing that “It’s Time” to do more, in October 2018 Main Street Project boldly seized the opportunity to acquire the Mitchell Fabric Building on Main Street, just a stone’s throw from the Martha Street shelter. Plans are now well underway to redevelop that 36,000 square foot space into a modern, properly equipped, round-the-clock shelter, detox centre and treatment facility.
The need for a shelter like this in Winnipeg has never been greater, particularly with the recent scourge of crystal meth and opiate addiction, and the terrible effects of that scourge, all of which are in plain sight on the streets of Winnipeg. Vulnerable people in our city need help.
We're working on finalizing our Start location - check back soon!
Between 6:00 and 8:00 pm a warm, light meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers.
