Metro Turning Point Centre
Metro Turning Point is a shelter for men experiencing homelessness. We offer support services from a guest centered approach.
A Supportive Housing Program is available on site, and men residing in the shelter can self-refer.
A trusteeship program is also operated from Metro Turning Point which provides financial support services and money management to men and women living in the HRM.
GETTING A BED
If a man is experiencing homelessness, and does not have the means to secure housing elsewhere, he may call at any time (902.420.3282) to determine if there is a bed available. If there are no beds available at that time, please encourage the person you are working with to arrive at Metro Turning Point (2170 Barrington Street) at midnight any day of the week, because beds are reassigned each day.
Guests who are registered at the shelter are required to re-register each day at midnight. Guests must remain on property from midnight to 6am in order to secure their assigned bed.
Please call for more information about the availability and schedule of onsite resources.
