Colder weather is on the way. Unfortunately some people in the Nipissing community will struggle to heat their homes this winter.
Help is available. The District of Nipissing Social Services Board is reminding people of their Community Homelessness Prevention Initiative. The fund is available for families who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.
A one time heating grant is also being re-introduced this year. Contact the administration board at (705) 474-2151 if you want to apply.
