The mission of House of Charity is to feed those in need, house those experiencing homelessness, and empower individuals to achieve independence by transforming lives...one person at a time.

Since 1952, House of Charity has made an impact in the lives of those experiencing homelessness, and those who are hungry through operating our Food Centre. The mission of our Food Centre is simple; feed all those who walk through our doors, no questions asked. Every day of the year, we serve a hot, free, nutritious meal to over 350 men, women and children.

With a small kitchen staff, we rely heavily on volunteers to assist us in preparing and serving our 5 meals each weekday and 4 meals each weekend day. Volunteers, on a given week, make up 60-80% of our daily staff. Simply put, House of Charity could not operate the Food Centre without their help.
