Brantford Welcome In Resource Centre

Giving Emergency Shelter and Support To Those Who Are Homeless


 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 homeless and to assist them to try to get out of 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 2012 the shelter was incorporated and then received CRA status as Not For Profit in 2013.

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.

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