Hello friends,

On February 20th, 2021 I will be walking to raise funds to address homelessness in my beautiful hometown of Nelson BC.  The last time we gathered for the Coldest Night of the Year (2020) we were on the eve of a worldwide pandemic. No one knew how this year would unfold but we knew we had to act quickly.

COVID 19 shone a brilliant light on what it means to a have a safe and affordable home to take refuge in, for many in our community this is simply not a reality.

Nelson CARES Society staff and volunteers have worked non-stop to prevent the spread of COVID 19 in our community and specifically among those experiencing homelessness. With our funders and community partners we increased the number of emergency shelter beds, we set up a warming centre and we ensured people have access to food and hygiene services.  It really has been a year none of us will forget!

This year, 2021, will sadly mark the 7th year of near 0% rental housing vacancy in Nelson.  To that end, Nelson CARES Society will complete the construction of 88 new, safe, affordable, rental housing units at two locations.

Let’s all work to make this year one of the last years, where affordability and housing insecurity lead to further homelessness in Nelson.

Join us to walk the walk…. or make a donation to the Coldest Night of the Year- Nelson.
