The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk to raise money for local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Join us on February 25, 2023 - team up, fundraise, walk, and gather for good... because it’s cold out there.

About Street Level Advocacy of Peterborough

Peterborough has a beautiful downtown. However, in recent years, our downtown has become a resting place for those who do not have a fixated address. Many people camp in the parks, congregate on benches or hang out by the river. The locals have become distressed over the impact this has had on their city, and often get frustrated without understanding why these people live the way they do.


A few years ago, I picked up a young guy on a cold day and offered to help him fix his e-bike as he was visibly struggling with it. I realized that this young man (along with many others) had a huge desire to start a new life, find a job and housing but simply did have the resources or was not taken seriously. He needed an advocate. So I became his advocate and found him permanent housing. From that point on, I began to shift my thinking to how we could become advocates for the homeless and hungry. Our goal now is to build a team that can engage folks on the streets and advocate for their next steps.
