Inn from the Cold - Kelowna

About Us


About Us

Inn from the Cold – Kelowna began in 1999 when a group of like-minded community members saw a need to help people experiencing homelessness and life outdoors in the winter. These dedicated volunteers coordinated nightly bus transportation to a church hall, and provided an evening meal, overnight shelter, and breakfast.

These volunteers were committed to providing compassion, dignity, safety, and respect for all individuals experiencing homelessness.

Today, Inn From The Cold provides year-round support and advocacy programs including outreach services, case management, inn-home support, and a street soccer. We also co-run a Free-Store with Metro Community. We are currently in the midst of two upcoming projects. We will keep you updated as they progress.

Inn From The Cold is non-profit organization responding to the needs of our community’s most vulnerable people. We are proud of our history – from a grass-roots, community-driven initiative to a charitable, volunteer-driven organization addressing the issues of homelessness and isolation in Kelowna.
