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 provides emergency shelter services to those in need of a warm, safe and welcoming place to sleep. Hope Mission shelter services are open year-round, seven days a week, 24hrs a day and offer a range of wrap-around services, such as medical care, addiction recovery and housing supports. There is no fee to access services.
Hope Mission shelter services are provided at two locations, which are located within close walking distance of each other:
- Hope Mission Center downtown: 9908-106 Ave
- Herb Jamieson Center downtown: 10014-105A Ave
Together, these locations offer 525 year-round emergency shelter spaces to community members aged 16+. The Hope Mission Center location supports female community members (125 spaces) and the Herb Jamieson Center location supports male community members (400 spaces). The following is a breakdown of shelter services offered in both facilities:
- Services for heavily intoxicated community members to stay and stabilize while under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Services for community members with mobility concerns (accessible for those using a wheelchair, cane or walker) and/or health issues within our level of care
- Regular emergency shelter spaces
During periods of extreme weather (such as extreme cold or significant weather events) additional spaces can be activated to accommodate more community members in need of shelter.

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 over 1500 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.
