Hours are being extended at New Brunswick’s emergency shelters due to the storm.

The Lions Centre on St. George Street, House of Nazareth on Albert Street and Harvest House Atlantic on High Street are now open 24/7, the province announced Wednesday.

“We want to ensure everyone who needs them has access to safe, warm spaces,” Social Development Minister Jill Green said in a news release.

“I want to thank our operating partners in communities across the province for answering the need, especially during winter weather.”

The province has also expanded its outreach teams, which serve as a street presence for unsheltered people seeking support and services.
