The City of Grande Prairie’s Mobile Outreach Program (MOP) is expanding its weekend operating hours to increase support for the community.
Effective May 7, 2022 Saturday and Sunday hours will be consistent with weekday operations of 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.
The increased operation hours allow for additional supports to be provided to clients, more assistance with proactive patrols, and an increased presence in the community. They further increase evening transportation availability for the vulnerable population to the emergency overflow shelter which only becomes available at 10:00 p.m.
MOP works to mitigate the impacts of street engagement, addiction and public intoxication while taking a trauma informed approach. MOP provides urgent support for clients navigating social services such as emergency shelters, health care, addictions treatment and housing to secure basic needs.
