We provide food, shelter, clothing and skills that offer hope and healing to people seeking to build a wholesome life. But our work is only possible thanks to the kindness of supporters like you.

Hope Starts with a Meal

As Felix grew older, he relied heavily on his eldest daughter for support. When she suddenly passed away, he had nowhere to turn. Felix first came to our centre in the middle of winter—cold, hungry and alone. But thanks to our generous donors, The Ottawa Mission was able to provide Felix with temporary shelter and three nutritious meals a day, right when he needed them most!

Through our housing service, Felix found a safe and warm apartment in a local seniors facility. Today, he is still a regular meal guest at our centre and is so grateful for the donors who make every plate of nutritious food possible.

YOU made Felix’s story of transformation possible. And by giving today, you have the chance to DOUBLE your impact to help even more people like Felix!

Building Brighter Tomorrows

Joel lived in and out of shelters for many years until he knew it was time for him to take control of his life and seek help. He knew about the range of programs available at The Mission and approached our staff for help.

Thanks to our generous donors, Joel found an apartment through our housing support team. With your help, he was also able to connect with his foster mother, who had been searching for him for 30 years! Joel’s story of love and transformation was only possible thanks to the support of compassionate people like you.

By donating and getting matched on Giving Tuesday, you can help TWICE as many people like Joel access the support they need to build brighter tomorrows.
