    3rd Annual Winter Clothing Drive 2015

  • ORGANIZATIONS YOU'LL BE SUPPORTING

    2015 represents the 3rd Annual Winter Clothing Drive in association and support of three amazing 

    local organizations who dedicate their time, energy and lives to making Ottawa a better community.

    THE OTTAWA MISSION

     

    The Ottawa Mission provides food, shelter, clothing and life-changing programs to people in Ottawa who are homeless, hungry and suffering.

     

    Last year, generous support from the community allowed The Ottawa Mission to provide:

     

    · shelter for 1,733 individuals

    · a bed for 235+ people every night who are homeless

    · close to 473,000 meals for the hungry

    · 930 patient visits to our dental clinic and 7,498 visits to our health clinic

    · education, job training and mental health support to people in search of a better life

    · daily chapel services and spiritual support in times of crisis

    · addiction treatment services to 79 men who completed our 30-day program, and 25 men who graduated from our 5-month residential program

    · transitional housing for 15 men in addiction recovery

    · services to help 100 men move out of the shelter into safe, affordable housing

    YOUVILLE CENTRE

     

    Youville Centre is an innovative centre that motivates, educates and nurtures young mothers and their children to become self-sufficient, contributing members of society. At Youville Centre, we believe that every child and youth has the ability to learn and grow, and that every young mother deserves to have a dream that anything is possible. Our myriad of programs and services help our young moms to work towards personal, academic and parenting goals in order to create a brighter future for themselves and their children.

     

    Todays Youth Is Tomorrow's Future

     

    Located in Ottawa, Youville Centre is a non-profit, registered charity that serves adolescent mothers and their children. Youville’s trauma-informed, holistic programs and services include: crisis intervention, intensive mental health therapy and treatment, addiction counselling, collaborative problem solving, a licensed child development program with a focus on infant mental health, attachment-based parenting programs with intervention and treatment, and a fully accredited secondary school. For more than a quarter century, Youville Centre has been an innovative centre that motivates, educates and nurtures young mothers and their children to become self-sufficient, contributing members of society.

     

     

     

    CORNERSTONE WOMEN'S SHELTER

     

    Cornerstone provides emergency shelter and supportive housing for a diversity of women. Our services are offered in an environment which promotes dignity and a sense of hope. We are committed to public education and advocacy, and strive to increase safe, affordable housing and to end homelessness.

     

    Get informed! Get inspired! Get involved!
    Choose Hope With Us!

     

    A community organization dedicated to improving the lives of homeless women. It is my hope that our organization will inspire you to get involved in our vision. We want every woman in Ottawa to have a safe, affordable place to call home so she can reach her full potential in a caring community. It's that simple and that ambitious.
