Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser walk

*Want to go for a Walk?*

Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY) is a winterrific, family-friendly fundraiser walk that takes place in participating cities all over North America on the last Saturday in February every year! Saturday, February 24, 2024 was WATTS’ second year hosting the event for Winchester, VA.  We had 845 walkers come out to participate and raised over $100,000!

THANK YOU for raising funds for WATTS to help the men and women we serve in Winchester, Frederick, and Clarke Counties and walking in support of our guests who always have to walk or ‘move along.’

Save the date for February 22, 2025!

**Walk in Winchester, VA for WATTS**
WATTS’s mission is to break the cycle of homelessness one life at a time. We empower individuals to re-enter the workforce and connect individuals to the resources needed to be as self-sufficient as possible while providing a safe, temporary shelter during extreme weather.


In 2009, a group of faith-based leaders recognized there was a population of homeless adults who do not qualify for admission to other local shelter programs. Realizing these folks would be sleeping outside during the coldest weeks of winter and seeing a solution with their warm church buildings which were empty at night, WATTS was born. Since that time, WATTS has grown and expanded to meet the needs of homeless individuals in our area. Today, we provide 21 weeks of overnight shelter from November to March, along with a daytime Warming Center in the winter, and a daytime Cooling Center in the summer. We’ve also added our Transition Out of Homelessness Program, with staff members who work year-round to assist guests in ending their homelessness.
