Out of the Cold opens today
Barrie Out of the Cold will open its doors today, providing meals and overnight accommodation to those without homes.
This marks the start of 20 years of providing safe, respectful, welcoming overnight accommodation and meals from November to April.
Community support along with volunteers are essential in order for Barrie Out of the Cold to continue to be there as an alternative to sleeping out in the cold.
For more information about the Barrie Out of the Cold program and volunteer requirements, visit barrieoutofthecold.org.
Its season of operation runs from mid-November to the end of April, out of five host churches, providing meals and overnight accommodations for guests. Barrie Out of the Cold has been serving up hospitality and compassion to those in need since January 1988.
