New Out of the Cold program leads come before council to request funding for part-time emergency shelter co-ordinator.



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.
