Coldest Night of the Year Event Raises Funds and Awareness for Homelessness

Child With CNOY Baloons

2014 CNOY WalkersIt may not have technically been the coldest night this winter, but it ended up being one of the snowiest! 

On Saturday February 22, about 200 Nanaimo and Parksville area residents gathered at John Barsby Community School in Nanaimo to don "Coldest Night of the Year" toques, turn in their pledges, and walk together down the wet and slippery streets to raise much needed funds for the Island Crisis Care Society. 

The snow never let up and neither did the walker's resolve to finish the 2, 5, or 10 Kilometer loops around Harewood, South Nanaimo, and the Old City Quarter. 63 communities across Canada participated in the event this year and collectively raised a national total of $2,327,863.00.

Mary's Place

Mary's Place is one of three second stage housing options offered to women as part of a two year pilot project funded by BC Housing and ICCS. Watch this excellent Nanaimo Shaw TV report on how Mary's Place has turned out to be a "good news" story for Jennifer:


In 2012 ICCS identified gaps in the housing continuum following the successful opening of new supportive housing in Nanaimo. While many chronically homeless individuals were delighted to move into permanent supportive housing, others continued to return to Samaritan House for a variety of reasons. Significant among these was the need for greater support during each day and a quality that many individuals described about Samaritan House that they had really missed. They described this quality with words like "community," "acceptance," and "familiar." In 2013 ICCS collaborated with BC Housing to plan and launch a pilot project to gather data over a two year period on which combination of services provided the best support for women who fell through the identified gaps.
