It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk that raises money for charities serving hungry, homeless, and hurting people in our community. Walk with us on February 22, 2020!

About Goderich Homelessness Initiative

The Goderich and Area Community Committee of the Perth-Huron United Way invites you to walk with us on February 22nd, 2020 to help eliminate chronic homelessness in Goderich.


In Huron County, 100 individuals identified themselves as experiencing homelessness during 2018. 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.


Please walk in support of the United Way's Goderich Homelessness Initiative. Come walk, have a hot meal and stay for the CNOY dance February 22, 2020.

Community Sponsors

Goderich is super grateful for our fantastic 2020 sponsors! View all sponsors >
