United Way Perth-Huron and the community of South Huron are walking together on Feb 22nd, 2020 for the Coldest Night of the Year, to end chronic homelessness in South Huron.
Homelessness isn’t just about sleeping on the streets. A person may be in a temporary shelter, incarcerated without a place to go afterwards or “couch surfing”. It affects almost every aspect of
life including family well-being, employment and physical and mental health.
In Huron County, 100 individuals identified themselves as experiencing homelessness during 2018.
We're working on finalizing our Start location - check back soon!
Between 6:00 and 8:00 pm a warm, light meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers.
