Award-winning storage

 
March 2nd 2015
 

A Canadian church which runs a storage facility where homeless people can store their belongings has won a $40,000 grant to continue its work.

The First United facility in Vancouver has around 200 containers, where users can stash their belongings while they go out to work or use other homeless services – and can access them throughout the day.

A few homeless services in the UK offer luggage store facilities. Look for the ‘LS’ symbol under services in The List section (in the middle of the magazine).
