The local crisis in homelessness has put a push on to open a temporary emergency shelter in Collingwood this winter.

Spearheaded by Out of the Cold South Georgian Bay and the Collingwood chapter of the Simcoe County Alliance to End Homelessness (SCATEH), the shelter would be open from November to April. 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.
