At The Mission, our frontline services are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so people experiencing poverty and homelessness have access to healthy meals, a clean and warm place to sleep, and clean clothes.

Our Frontline team members are the first point of contact for people who have nowhere else to turn to for help. They respond to the needs of our clients and ensure our guests are provided with comfortable shelter at night.

Frontline staff are trained in non-violent crisis intervention and First Aid to deal with many situations. They ensure everyone at The Mission is protected, and they provide access to basic emergency supports, such as food, toiletries, clean and warm clothing appropriate for job interviews and other occasions, and connections to longer-term supports to help shelter guests rebuild their lives. Our team ensures that those who stay at our shelter are safe and secure.
