Whether you’re a guest at one of the Out of Cold locations or looking to volunteer, we’re happy to help you find the answers you’re looking for.
The Out of the Cold Foundation is a charitable organization separate from the individually run programs that exist throughout the city in the winter months. If you’re interested in running a program – we’re here to help and can point you in the right direction. We also accept funding applications throughout the year, and the form can be found here. We do not however, run any individual programs. If you’re thinking about offering a program or service, we suggest checking in with your parishioners and leaders within your organization to see if you can support with volunteers and a safe, clean and warm space.
A few programs have decided not to participate this season due to Covid-19 concerns but most have found ways to safely respond to the growing needs of the community they have served for decades. All Out of the Cold services across Toronto are run through the generous donation of time made by hundreds of volunteers. If you’re looking to support a specific location, please visit our Volunteer page to select a program near you. Use the contact information provided to get in touch with the Coordinator who will review their safety protocols and suggest the best ways you can help.
