Just a quick post to let everyone know the awaited Burgers for Relief campaign 2020 will be postponed until 2021.  We were so looking forward to partnering with restaurants this year and growing our fundraiser, however due to COVID-19 we need all hands on deck here at Crisis Centre.  All of our residential programs have stayed open during the pandemic to ensure our community members  have the services they need to get by.  Wishing you all the best this fall!

It has been brought to our attention that google has listed the homeless shelter as "temporarily closed"  while we wait for them to fix their mistake I wanted to post to ensure everyone is aware the shelter is open for admissions.  You will be screened at the door using the Ontario Governments COVID-19 screener.  If you have questions about the services offered at the shelter please call 705-474-1031.  We are open 24 hours a day.

Crisis Centre North Bay would like to thank participating restaurants and special donors that contributed to the Burgers for Relief campaign. $7118.20 was raised during this campaign, all monies will go towards the renovation costs for the kitchen at North Bay’s only 24/7 co-ed homeless shelter-operated by Crisis Centre.
Thank you to everyone in the community who came out to support the Crisis Centre and to the 18 restaurants who participated in 2019 to make this campaign a huge success! Many thanks to Caisse Alliance and the  New Ontario Brewing Company for their sponsorship and Pizza Hut and The Sub Place for the donation of prizes.
Stay tuned Burgers for Relief 2020 will be happening in September this year!!

Crisis Centre North Bay is bringing you “Burgers for Relief” a week of special burgers created by local restaurants all in support of raising funds for a new kitchen for North Bays only co-ed homeless shelter.  Last year Crisis Centre served approx. 30,000 meals in a kitchen in dire need of upgrading.  Burgers for Relief runs from October 3-9, 2019.  STAY TUNED!!

Again,  this year Home Depot North Bay chose Crisis Centre to be the recipients of funds raised through their Orange Door Holiday Campaign to end youth homelessness.  The North Bay store came in first place for funds raised across Canada!!!  Our 10-bed Transitional Housing program (Futures Residence on Cassells Street) for homeless youth is in of many renovations.  This funding will assist us in providing a safe, well maintained home for youth.    Thank you Home Depot!

I am thrilled to report on the excellent work of the Nipissing Attendance Centre, a program of Crisis Centre.  Last year, in addition to their standardized programming, they provided gender specific programming to almost 100 students in grades 7-12.  The topics include:  self-esteem, personal growth and self-care, stress management, anti-bullying/cyberbullying, being role models and allies, safe dates and sexual consent.
Providing guidance and support to teens is an essential part of helping them develop into mature, well-adjusted adults.
This fall the Attendance Centre will continue to offer programming to vulnerable youth.  Check out the program's summary on the website for more information!
