Drop-In Centre

Our drop-in centre is currently closed but will reopen with limited hours beginning on Tuesday July 7th, 2020.

Crocus will be open to members 3 days a week (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday) from 10:30am-11:30am and from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. We will close from 11:30am-12:00pm to allow time for proper sanitizing. At this time we will only be allowing 20 members in the building during each 1 hour block. We ask that members choose to come either at 10:30am or 12:00pm, as each member will only be able to access the drop-in for 1 hour each day. Lunch will be served during both time blocks.

The building will be closed on Mondays & Fridays.

To ensure the safety of our members & staff, all individuals entering Crocus will be asked screening questions, have their temperature taken and will be provided with a mask to wear. Tables and chairs are distanced 6 feet apart and members will be asked to social distance when inside the building. Members will have access to our meal program, TV, phone use, washrooms and support services. At this time we are not offering computers, couches or group programming.
