The Coldest Night of the Year is a winterrific family-friendly walk in support of local charities serving people experiencing hurt, hunger, and homelessness. Join us on February 24, 2024 - team up, fundraise, walk, and take a moment to look closer... because it’s cold out there.
For five decades, Compass House has stood as one of the nation's oldest shelter and service providers for youth, offering shelter, counseling, and so much more. Compass House is the ONLY shelter in Western New York that provides services for youth of all gender identities. From a warm bed and hot meals to caring words, Compass House is here when youth need us, 24-hours a day, and 365 days a year.
Our mission is to provide runaway, homeless and street youth with safe shelter and services, through a voluntary and mutually agreed-upon process, in an environment that supports dignity, respect and self-reliance.
We serve approximately 300 youth at our shelter annually and an additional 300 youth at our Resource Center.
We will walk around Ring Road in Delaware Park with a starting point of the Parkside Lodge. Once around the ring will be the 2.5km option. Twice around the ring will be the 5km option.
