  • Sleeping Out

    It’s hard to imagine sleeping outside in the winter. And it’s terrible that this is the reality for people who are homeless in our community.

    But your Sleep Out makes a big difference. Sign up today to raise funds in solidarity with youth facing homelessness, to make sure our youth have a place to go when they need it most.

  • Warming Shelter

    Ten More Beds!

    Last winter was rough.

    With shelters full across the region and a long waiting list for Spectrum’s 25 beds, we often had to turn young people away who needed somewhere to sleep.

    Thanks to you, we’ve been able to open a warming shelter for the cold winter months.

    Ten beds line the walls at the St. Joseph's Co-Cathedral in downtown Burlington. The shelter opened at the beginning of November and will close at the end of March.
