About Community Connections Society

The Homeless Outreach and Prevention Programs serve people living with poverty in the Cranbrook area. Your involvement in the Coldest Night of the Year walk has the potential of positively impacting hundreds of lives in Cranbrook by giving actual support and hope to those in need.

The money raised from this event will be used to help fund Community Connections Society of Southeast BC’s Homeless Outreach and Prevention Programs which includes services and supports to those that are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Homeless Outreach and Homeless Prevention provides support and services to hundreds of people per year in Cranbrook and beyond. We help those who have low or no income or access to income supports find income resources. We support those who have issues with medical and disability benefits. We also assist with housing information, housing applications and in some cases short and long term planning. Because of the homeless outreach and prevention services, hundreds of people in Cranbrook have avoided homelessness through housing subsidies, security deposits, landlord mediation, utility payments, food support, short-term rental assistance and much, much more.

While our long term goal is to continue to provide these valuable programs through sustainable funding our short term goal is to raise $50,000 through the Coldest Night of the Year walk to supplement and enhance these programs.

Community Connections Society of Southeast BC, on behalf of the Homeless Outreach and Prevention programs, is pleased to be bringing this exciting event to Cranbrook for the first time.

Thank you to all of those who are participating, donating, volunteering and supporting this amazing event!
