The City has notified the Guardians Foundation that it is ending the contractual relationship to operate the Trent Resource and Assistance Center and Cannon Street at the end of the month. The Salvation Army has agreed to assume operation of both locations. The City issued the following statement about the transition:

“Our top priority is to make a smooth transition so that those using the Trent Resource and Assistance Center and Cannon Street locations can continue sleeping indoors with access to meals and services uninterrupted. Expanding our partnership with The Salvation Army will create an even closer connectivity to the other services and transitional housing resources they operate. The Salvation Army shows great care in the work they do with those who find themselves in need of services and have great relationships with neighborhoods around our community.

The decision to make a change was difficult, but it was done in the best interest of everyone concerned. Review activities already underway remain open and are separate from this decision. We will have updates when there is more information to provide.”
