Our Work

With homelessness on the rise, housing has been declared an emergency in Ottawa.  That’s why The Mission addresses immediate needs while collaborating with community partners to prioritize long-term solutions for poverty and homelessness. Our wide array of programs and services enable people to improve their lives and build brighter futures.
