After 20 years operating out of local churches, Barrie’s Out of the Cold emergency shelter program now has a permanent home at the David Busby Street Centre.

The emergency shelter program will move away from operating nightly during the winter months, and beginning in November, will have a permanent home and new operational structure at 88 Mulcaster Street in Barrie, operating under the direction of the David Busby Street Centre staff. more > 



As a result of COVID-19, Out of The Cold Collingwood will remain open until such time as threats posed by the pandemic have passed and is available to our guests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  People experiencing homelessness or at risk of this, continue to receive support through community navigators who can be reached by dialing 211.  

If you are at risk or experiencing homelessness in the Collingwood area, please start by calling 211 which is available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.


If you are wanting to offer help to the program, please see our “I Want To Help” on this page for updates on our urgent needs.
