At the heart of the Upper Room Mission we aim to share God’s love by caring for the poor and the hungry, ease the burden of the most vulnerable, rebuild the lives of the broken and provide dignity to those who feel cast aside.
We are motivated by loving our neighbour the best way we can. This means that we cannot just stand by or walk past a person in need. We are motivated to act in love, give hope and a place of belonging.
This starts with providing for the basic needs of the people who cannot provide for themselves. Everyone should have the opportunity to realize their own worth and be inspired to invest in their lives, but this is not always possible when you struggle to find food and have no place to go at the end of the day. Giving hope and inspiration starts with a warm meal, some clean clothes or a simple conversation in love. Through building relationships, we provide access to services and resources that lead to healthier lives.
To do all this, we rely on donations, volunteers and income from our thrift store, The Boutique. Every gift makes a huge difference in the lives of those less fortunate in our community.
What We do
WE PROVIDE A DAY SHELTER
We provide a safe place to be during the day, a place away from the stresses of living on the streets or isolation from the community. It’s a place for the poor, unsheltered and marginalized in our community.
WE PROVIDE FOOD SECURITY
At the core of our mission, we provide healthy and nutritious meals to those that do not have the resources to provide for themselves or their family members.
OTHER ESSENTIAL SERVICES
We provide access to clothing and laundry services as well as connect our guests with other community partner organizations that provide housing, health services and employment opportunities.
