Abstract: This is a collection of newspaper clippings and reports decribing the efforts of two Thunder Bay Emergency Services. The Downtown Health and Social Development Centre has been a drop-in, hostel, health service with nurse practitioners and a food and clothing service. Its uniqueness has been the active role of nurse
practitioners in response to the health needs of the Skid Row area of Old Port Arthur. Also included is a brief report on the establishment of an emergency shelter in old Fort William. By June 30, 1976, 676 people were given shelter there. This was initiated by The Thunder Bay Council of Clergy and continued through April 1977. Both efforts have now closed due to funding problems.
