The Bridge ShelterThe month of February 2013 Coquitlam Alliance will be partnering with The Bridge Shelter (previously known as the Cold Wet Weather Mat Program). Hope For Freedom is operating the program every night at Northside Church Kingsway Campus 2606 Kingsway Avenue, Port Coquitlam, from October to March. Rather than changing churches each month they are now allowing the campers to walk up to the church every night and bring their belongings. This shelter will be a transition from the Cold Wet Weather Mat Program to the new permanent shelter being built in Coquitlam within the next couple of years.
Many volunteers are needed to run this program and the following spots need to be filled this weekend. Click here to view the openings. Below is a list of duties for each position.
