Homelessness touches many lives at a significant cost to communities. The Cool Aid Society has been a key player in the work to end homelessness in the Capital Region for decades and, with your help, is developing 360 more apartments for people who are currently homeless.

Volunteers run many of our programs here at Rock Bay Landing (RBL). Without their time, our clients would be unable to access computer services, hygiene services, clothing and other donations. The time given to us by our volunteers is immeasurably valuable and we appreciate every moment of it.
