About United Way Simcoe Muskoka

United Way Simcoe Muskoka is bringing together our communities to reduce poverty and isolation across Simcoe County and Muskoka. Poverty is an everyday reality for more than 60,000 of our friends, family and neighbours, limiting potential, increasing physical and mental health risks and raising obstacles that most people never even have to think about.

Tackling a problem as big as poverty will take all of us. That’s why UWSM is funding multi-year collaborative projects across Simcoe Muskoka. These projects are addressing the root causes of poverty and isolation to drive long-lasting change for our most vulnerable residents.

In Bradford, that project is YouthCALL Service Link, a live-answer telephone service that is assisting transitional-aged youth in a time when they need it most. While many services exist for adults and children, those transitioning into adulthood are often left without resources or help. All this despite the fact that transitional-aged youth experience higher rates of mental health challenges and addiction, and LGBTQ+ youth are at increased risk of poverty due to family rejection, social isolation, homelessness, and a lack of education and employment opportunities.

That’s where YouthCALL comes in. By working one-on-one with local youth, the Community Service Navigator at YouthCALL can help with:

- Crisis Support

- Mental Health

- Addictions

- Housing

- Finances

- Primary Care

- Employment

- Education

- Legal Services

YouthCALL also partners with the Gilbert Centre to ensure that LGBTQ+ youth have the supports they need.

So far, YouthCALL has helped connect hundreds of youth with critical, sometimes life-saving, services.

Here’s what one YouthCALL recipient had to say about her time with the program and Kim, the Community Service Navigator:

“Kim has helped me with many things and has always gone above and beyond. When I first met Kim, she helped me find housing by helping me message or call people for a room. I also sent her a lease to read over with me, as well as getting back into school by planning with me and telling one of the teachers about me. I know I can call Kim for help whenever I need to. Kim has even had meeting with me just to help with homework if I was behind or not understanding something. Overall, Kim has helped me with anything I have needed help with or even just to talk. I’m really glad Kim was there to help when I started living alone as it for sure made the process a lot easier.”

In addition to YouthCALL, UWSM supports projects that help those transitioning out of homelessness or domestic violence into a new home, connects social and primary health services, better equips frontline

Event Day Details

Save the date - CNOY Day is February 26, 2022!

Join us in-person on Saturday, February 26, 2022. Scroll down to read all the event day details!

StartGoogle Map

Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury Leisure Centre

471 West Park Ave, Bradford, ON L3Z 0J3

Important Notes

  • Parking: Please park in the Library parking lot. There is a hockey tournament going on at the Leisure Centre and so parking will be limited. Please walk if you can!
  • Covid Safety: Please plan on wearing a face mask during the event. Even though it is outdoors, we want to make sure all are as safe as possible when social distancing is not possible
  • Dogs: Although we appreciate your pet's eagerness to support CNOY, we would ask that Fido sit this one out. There will be a variety of children and adults who might be nervous around dogs (even friendly ones!) and we want to make sure every participant can complete their walk comfortably. The exception to the rule would be service dogs, of course.

Check-in

  • All walkers must check-in personally to participate in the in-person event on Saturday, February 26, 2022.
  • Toques! Fundraising walkers who raise $150+ (or $75+ for those under 18) will receive a CNOY toque as a thank you on event day, while supplies last.

Handling Money

We cannot process cash or cheques at our in-person event. Here's what you can do:

  • Cheques: The Old Faithful - made out to Coldest Night of the Year with your name on the Memo line. Mail them to CNOY Head Office along with your completed pledge sheet.
  • Cash: You have 2 options:
  • 1. Login to FundHub, click “Enter $$ and Cheques,” create pledges for your cash donations, pay them off with your personal credit card, and keep the cash. OR...
  • 2. Write a cheque (made out to “Coldest Night of the Year”) for the total amount of cash you’ve collected. Mail it to the CNOY Head Office with your completed pledge sheet.

What to Bring

A few common sense suggestions:

  • A cell phone for emergencies (recommended but not required)
  • Good waterproof shoes/boots for walking
  • Warm coat and mitts/gloves
  • A face mask for personal use or if you need to go inside
  • Extra snacks if you have allergies or food sensitivities
  • Your own water bottle
  • A passion for the charity you're walking and fundraising for

Waivers

All participants must register online this year and accept the electronic waiver.

  • When they register online, they will automatically accept an electronic waiver, which is all that is needed for adults.
  • If you have youth or children on your team, they will need to have their parent or guardian sign a printed paper waiver.
  • Someone on your team (like you!) must take a photo of all child/youth waivers and send them to waivers@cnoy.org.
