Giant steps have taken place lately, as Living Space in Timmins moves beyond being an overnight shelter into daytime programming.

Co-ordinator Jason Sereda says a wide range of community organizations have partnered with Living Space to offer support and outreach, every weekday afternoon from one until four.
