Niagara Falls drop-in centre for the homeless is closing
Just three months after a Niagara Falls drop-in centre for the homeless opened its doors, it's now closing.
The small centre can't handle the number of people using the space at Victoria Avenue and Willmott Street.
Angela Peebles, who started the centre in May, says she was expecting about 15 to 30 people but more than 200 started to arrive.
She said a larger space is needed and is hoping another organization, Niagara Region or City of Niagara Falls can find a permanent solution.
Peebles, who owns the The Regal Dinner, tells CKTB she is taking a break but will continue to help the city's homeless in some fashion.
A simulation that was put on by Niagara Health this week that helps train doctors with a mannequin that acts like a human body.
City Council approved sharp bins in the community to try and cut down on needles found in public spaces.
