Volunteers were busy on Saturday and Sunday, preparing the Uniting Safe Shelter (USS) for its opening night on Monday, May 13.
The service, originally called the Uniting Safe Space, will provide a safe place for the homeless men across Bathurst to sleep during the coldest months of the year.
Last year the service had six beds, but there'll be seven beds in 2019, as well as extra sleeping bags.
USS coordinator Julie Greig said volunteers have been busy not just on the weekend preparing, rather the past month.
"Volunteers have been working really hard to get it all ready," she said.
"There's been lots of different organisations and individuals showing some wonderful support for Uniting Safe Space. I think we've had about 50 volunteers all up across the past few weeks helping in one way or another."
Ms Greig said the Bathurst community has shown its strong support USS.
"Bathurst Uniting Church provides the space, but its supported by so many more organisations and individuals," she said.
"Shops in town have given us discounts and even some goods for free. We've been incredibly grateful for that."
The initiative is supported by an expert advisory group, with representatives from the church, Anglicare, St Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army, Bathurst Catholic Diocese, HopeCare, The Bridge Community and Wellways Australia.
Ms Greig said the idea to offer a safe place was because there were men sleeping at the steps of the Bathurst Uniting Church.
"I think it's wrong when we have a place to store junk but people are sleeping out in sub-zero temperatures," she said.
With the service set to open on Monday evening, USS appreciates any donations, which can be dropped off to the Bathurst Uniting Church.
USS is also looking for overnight volunteers when Charles Sturt University students will be unavailable, during the university holidays (June 24 to July 12).
