Welcome to 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.

Homelessness does exist in York Region, and we need your support!

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.

The Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold Program aims to help individuals who have lost their homes or are at risk of losing their homes by providing emergency shelter, clothing, meals, shower facilities, medical care, or just a compassionate ear. 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".

While Out of the Cold isn't a solution to the homeless crisis, it is a way to offer immediate assistance and hope to those who are marginalized in our affluent society.
