On February 24th, 2017, Capital City Mission and Jericho Road Ministries are partnering for Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY). Coldest Night of the Year is “a super-fun, family-friendly fundraiser that raises money for the hungry, homeless and hurting in 100+ communities across Canada.” Participating in a walkathon, individuals in groups raise money by collecting pledges for their 2km, 5km or 10km walks.
Jericho Road Ministries and Capital City Mission make natural partners since both organizations work to meet the needs of those living with the challenges of poverty, mental health issues, and/or addictions. By partnering for CNOY, we will share our stories with a larger group of people. We want people to understand the importance of these two organizations in our city, so that more people can be involved in meeting the needs of those who are marginalized.

Capital City Mission exists to meet the needs of the unemployed and street involved in Ottawa’s Lowertown, by demonstrating God’s love. Many of our friends struggle with mental health issues and addictions resulting in isolation from the broader community. Our aim is to provide a safe, quiet, and respectful space that fosters community, and together we make a home. The Drop-In is a first point of contact for many searching for health care, addiction services, mental health support, and housing options.
Jericho Road Ministries (jerichoroad.ca) provide addiction recovery and mental health support in Ottawa. They offer mental health support homes, a nine-month residential program for men following a traditional 12-step program, second stage addiction homes, and second stage co-occurring disorders support homes. Jericho Road also runs a weekly coffee house for those living in the inner city.
