The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Join us on February 25, 2023 - team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good... because it’s cold out there.

About Home Horizon

Home Horizon is a charitable organization in Collingwood, Ontario, serving the South Georgian Bay communities.

In July 2017, we moved into the Barbara Weider House - a 6-bedroom, 7-bed facility for homeless youth. The facility provides youth facing homelessness with safe housing, coupled with access to counseling and social and life skills programs to help them successfully rebuild their lives and transition to independent living and adulthood. Though we have transitioned our successful clients unto independent living, this program is full. Meanwhile, we have a wait list who we are supporting through our Outreach programs.

Our goal is to support vulnerable youth in rebuilding their lives and integrating back into their communities, as opposed to continuing down a path of homelessness.

100% of money raised will go towards this goal.

Please consider a donation, to help us give this youth a chance to rebuild their lives and become a contributing member of our community.
