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 Ottawa Mission

The Ottawa Mission provides food, shelter, clothing, and life-changing programs to people who are hungry, homeless and lost.


Last year we served an average of 1,385 meals each day and provided emergency shelter to 195 people every night. Being a part of the WALK means that you will help hundreds of people receive food, shelter and hope for a better future.
