homeless shelter Toronto

Luxury homeless shelter opens in Toronto

Toronto's latest luxury hotel homeless shelter opened Thursday night. The much-anticipated Peter St. shelter is now ready for use after 40 long months and $11.5-million. The 40-bed shelter will offer respite services, overnight assistance and outreach programs for the homeless, as well as businesses in the area.

The cost for the shelter, which is located at Richmond and Peter, is more than double the originally estimated price.
