Olivia McCorristion, The Chair for Stand Up to Save Oscars Place Group told CJAR that the doors of the Oscars Place Homeless Shelter will now stay open until March 31st of 2018.
McCorriston added that even thought they have an extension to keep the shelter open there is no programming for Shelter operations right now.
She went on to say that as of October first the Shelter will be run by the community and not by The Pas Friendship Centre and they still need people to come forward and volunteer in any way they can.
If you are interested in volunteering you can call McCorriston at 204-761-9244
