Crisis Centre: provides continuous support to our clients 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. MSP services are open to individuals who walk in, are referred to us by other agencies, or come into contact with the Main Street Project van patrol.
Emergency Shelter: 58 spaces, operates 365 days a year, providing safe, supervised overnight shelter for individuals in need. Access to this service is open to adults only, male and female.
Non-medical Detoxification Centre: 25 spaces, provides supervised withdrawal from the effects of an individual's last substance abuse episode. The service is provided at no cost to adults assessed appropriate to MSP’s non-medical setting.
The Main Street Project Transition Services Team: provides counseling, support, and advocacy to clients, focusing on areas such as mental health, housing, client assessment, case planning, and community outreach.
The Mainstay Residence: is a supervised room and board environment that provides short term accommodation, meals, and a stable environment for adult men and women who are largely disadvantaged, in personal distress, often chemically dependent and homeless. Mainstay residents often transition, based on individual plans and goals, to safe accommodations, long term supported housing, substance abuse treatment programs, or other situations suited to their personal needs. Clients are expected to work actively on their transition plan throughout the duration of their stay.
IPDA: Operated in cooperation with Winnipeg Police Services, the Intoxicated Persons Detention Area provides a safe and secure environment for individuals detained under the Intoxicated Persons Detention Act.
