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 The Dam

When Eddy ended up on the streets of Toronto 24 years ago, there wasn’t a Dam for him to get the help when he needed it most. The worst part about being homeless is not just wondering where you’ll sleep at night, but also the instability and chaos that it causes in everyday life. Since 1995, the Dam has been creating a sense of belonging, community and more importantly a sense of home, not just for youth like Eddy, but for all youth coming of age in this overwhelming digital age.


Our Mission is partnering with Mississauga’s youth to create an inclusive community where all are welcomed, valued and respected. Our Vision is a community of youth empowered by discovering their worth, enabling them to grow and thrive in our community.


Walk with us on Feb 22 to support the youth of Mississauga.
