In January 2014, the Truro Homeless Outreach Society (THOS) was created to develop a year-round night-time emergency shelter for homeless men, women and families in our town. On April 1, 2015 we took over the fifteen bed shelter from the Out of the Cold at the First United Church. We have remained open and upgraded our guest accommodations since that time. Though we needed to close our doors for a few short months in 2017, we are excited to finally have a place of our own and have Hub House up and running.
We could not do what we do without the continued support of our amazing volunteers and community supporters. We need walkers, donors, businesses and corporate sponsor’s to again make this year’s WALK a success. So, bring your family, challenge your club, dare your team, compete with fellow employees, and show the country just how much your spirit can make a positive change in the lives of others in our community.
Between 6:00 and 8:00 pm a warm, light meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers.
