Education and Programs
Daytime initiatives at NightShift in Surrey
We are continually expanding our Education mission to include new programs and support groups to meet emotional, spiritual and practical needs of people in our community. Our programs welcome people in off the street to take advantage of care services and our Resource Centre is open daily (Mon-Fri) to offer one-on-one support to anyone in need.
Welcome Centre DROP-IN
Launched during COVID and building strongly ever since, this program provides an opportunity for people in the community to come by on weekday afternoons to connect, chat, access support and engage with NightShift volunteers and each other. Our DROP-IN days are Mondays thru Fridays from 2-4 pm. Warm up over a cup of hot chocolate or grab a cool drink when the temperatures are rising, and make new connections over a game of chess or a crafts activity and more.
Art Program – back again!
Open to everyone – join us on a drop-in basis on Fridays during our Welcome Centre (2-4 pm). Try your hand at drawing, painting, sculpting or whatever activities our group has lined up on the day. Our Art Program is free to attend and open to anyone in the community. We appreciate donations of supplies.

“You have all made such a difference in my life. Maggie has changed the way I do my art…. It is so much better now! And, you just remembering my name, means so much. I am struggling through some big health concerns right now and this place means so much to me. The atmosphere is different here.” Jim
