Brantford Welcome In Resource Centre

Giving Emergency Shelter and Support To The Vulnerable Ones


 Brantford Welcome In Resource Centre (BWRIC) is an incorporated charitable, not for profit agency. Our mission is to provide emergency shelter to those who are vulnerable & homeless, to assist them to try to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness. If you would like to know more about Our Vision, Mission and Values read here.

BWIRC grew out of the Out of The Cold program in Brantford which operated out of two churches in the early 2000's and then out of Yeschurch since 2005. In 2011 the shelter was incorporated and then received CRA status as Not For Profit in 2012.

BWRIC believes in a "whole person" approach to serving guests and works in partnership with other local agencies to ensure that our guests have access to the services they need to achieve personal success in overcoming challenging life issues.

BWIRC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and a volunteer advisory committee.

Our Privacy, Rights of Donors, Respecting Donor Privacy and complaint handling policies are available on this website for your information. If you have any questions or concerns with these policies kindly contact us.
