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.
Since 2005, The Samaritan Centre du samaritain has been providing affordable space for care, community, and services for some of Sudbury’s most vulnerable citizens facing multiple social barriers.
There are two main agencies (The Elgin Street Mission and The Blue Door Soup Kitchen) that provide meals and laundry/shower facilities as well as sprirtual guidance. Operated by New Hope Outreach Services, The Samaritan Centre also provides a daily Drop-In/Outreach Service as well as weekly hairdressing services and mental health/addictions counselling.
We operate together as a centre of transition to help to meet the mental, physical and spirtual needs of the homeless and vulnerable populations of Sudbury.
