Sophia & Adam – Champions of Hope

The Ottawa Mission would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude all of our donors for their kind and generous support over the years.  We simply would not be able to serve the growing numbers of those in need in our community without you.

In particular, we would like to highlight the significant impact of those donors who choose to give monthly – people like Sophia and Adam (pictured).  We call these friends Champions of Hope, and we would like to thank all of those who have recently responded to us and joined these ranks.

When donors like Sophia and Adam choose to make regular monthly gifts, not only is it more convenient for them, but we are able to save on the expense of producing and sending a mail appeal.  This is money that can immediately be put to work providing 1250 meals every day, shelter, medical care, job training, addiction treatment, and so much more.

Sophia has been a monthly donor for years.  When Sophia and Adam were married just over a year ago, she shared her thoughts about The Mission with him.  Together they decided to find out more about this place that somehow felt special.  So Sophia and Adam came for a tour.  For both of them, this was a true revelation.    As Sophia says, “There is so much going on that we were not aware of.  The Hospice is a beautiful and peaceful place, the client services centre is filled with people using computers to find jobs and getting help with housing, and the rooms in the shelter are spotless.”

Sophia and Adam are now more confident than ever that their monthly investment is a very wise one, and they are committed to continuing their support so that we can provide food, shelter and life-changing programs every day.  Thank you to all of our Champions of Hope.
