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 Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold

The Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold Program provides safe refuge, warm hospitality and emergency shelter in York Region to the homeless or those in need of food/clothing.

Overnight shelters are operated by various interfaith communities on different nights of the week from November to March.


Despite popular belief, homelessness can affect anyone regardless of age, ethnicity or status. It is not just a problem affecting drug users or alcoholics but anyone can face poverty and homelessness during difficult financial hardships. Out of the Cold has improved the lives of many who find themselves on the street during difficult times. An Out of the Cold guest once told one of the volunteers, "I feel like I'm with family when I come here.”


Walk with us on Feb 22nd, and raise funds to help us continue serving those at risk in our region!
