Vancouver’s homeless and under housed population often have appointments they must keep, including job and housing interviews. Unfortunately, many service organizations are not able to accommodate this population’s bins, shopping carts and totes carrying their belongings.
Providing a storage facility in the DTES assists by establishing a place where the homeless can take their belongings rather than leaving them out to be stolen or block sidewalks. The Short-Term Cart and Belongings Storage facility, which opened in October 2009 and is located at the DTES’s First United Church, offers safe, short-term storage to those with carts or other belongings.
