SHELTER & HOUSING
Hope Mission has been helping people leave the streets and discover a place they can call home for over 80 years. We provide emergency shelter for those who need a safe, dry, warm place to get a good night’s sleep. Our ultimate goal is to help individuals find a home of their own.

Hope Mission’s Youth Shelter offers a safe and non-judgmental environment, with staff members who have a genuine concern for “hardened” youth. This emergency shelter has served as a great contact point with these youth since 2004.
Long Term Housing
Rapid Exit is Hope Mission’s Housing First program. It aims to house and support chronically homeless individuals by helping them find and manage their own homes.
Rapid Exit works on a scattered site model; people are housed throughout the city and supported by follow-up workers who help connect them with further support and resources in their communities. In this program, the client takes the lead in their own recovery and is given freedom to choose which goals and services to pursue. To date, the Rapid Exit program has housed 150 clients.
Green Manor provides 52 affordable apartments to graduates of Hope Mission’s addiction recovery programs: giving homes to the homeless.
As a supported living environment, Green Manor will provide a place for people to become established in new communities, find ongoing employment, and become healthy members of society.
Immigration Hall is a transitional and long-term housing complex for men and is a gateway through which people enter new lives in their communities.
The building has 44 single resident suites that are available for rent at rates below market value. Rooms are available for Breakout graduates and Hope Mission employees. Many Breakout Recovery Community participants move into Immigration Hall during their work service.
The Hope Mission Centre
