Strides for Busby
DAVID BUSBY STREET CENTRE
Park Place and the David Busby Centre have teamed up for the inaugural Strides for Busby Fun Walk, taking place at Park Place on September 23 starting at 8 am. This is a fun back to school event for all ages. The walking course follows a 1 km route as outlined on the map. So, choose your goal and have your friends and family sponsor you to do a 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 KM walk in support of ending homelessness in Barrie. Everyone in attendance will be invited to enjoy refreshments and entertainment throughout the morning. As you have the opportunity to get a closer look at what Park Place has to offer during the back to school season, you are also making a difference in your community.
The David Busby Centre is a solutions-focused social service organization that facilitates meaningful support and programming, as well as works with collaborative partners to enhance accessible multi-disciplinary supports for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
We operate social service hub facility and outreach services that responds to our community’s homelessness crisis by providing housing focused programs, services and emergency group lodging. Our mission is to create the shortest path from homelessness to permanent safe housing.
