A Port in the Storm will close its doors effective July 31, 2020

After eight years of serving our rural and northern neighbours, A Port in the Storm will permanently close its doors on July 31, 2020.

The comfort, safety, and security of A Port in the Storm guests remains our priority, and we will continue housing guests between now and July 31.

Thank you to the many generous donors, stakeholders, volunteers, and staff who made it possible to help people receiving medical care and their families over the past eight years. You have had a profound impact on many lives.
