Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold, now a program of Blue Door, has served over 88 youth, men, and women experiencing homelessness with warm refuge and meals since opening for the winter in November 2021. A community-driven and collaborative interfaith program, 20 beds are available every night at either Richmond Hill Presbyterian Church or Ebenezer United Church.
Right now, the extreme cold coupled with the COVID-19 pandemic makes Blue Door’s seasonal emergency housing beds a critical life-saving resource for youth, men, and women experiencing homelessness. With your support, the Mosaic Interfaith Out of the Cold program is expected to continue to provide winter refuge, warm meals, and supports until March 31st, 2022.
