Your gift today will save lives, restore hope, and transform this city.
Because of you, the biggest project in Hope Mission’s history is now complete and the doors to the new Herb Jamieson Centre are finally open.
As we enter into this beautiful new chapter of Hope, you’re invited to partner with us in our final and most important Vision 2021 campaign of the year: providing 24/7 emergency care to our most vulnerable homeless neighbours this winter.
An Urgent Need
This pandemic has devastated thousands of already vulnerable people in Edmonton. Every day, we see more and more people on the streets — hungry, homeless, and with no place to go.
The need for safe 24/7 shelter has never been greater.
Looking ahead to these critical winter months, our deepest concern is for our most vulnerable homeless neighbours: those with chronic conditions, amputations, addictions, and severe mental health concerns. Getting them out of the cold and into safe shelter will be a matter of life or death.
Over 400 Beds
for vulnerable homeless neighbours
that transforms lives forever
to give them life-changing hope
for our fleet of 24/7 Rescue Vans
night and day, 365 days of the year
for the most vulnerable
from a dedicated team of nurses
This fall, you can help keep our doors open wide and provide safe, accessible, 24/7 shelter for all those who are weary and in need of rest.
Thanks to your transformation of this tired, old, and unsafe facility into a beautiful, brand-new Herb Jamieson Centre, there is now an environment where people can experience this same transformation and rebuilding in their own lives.
Now, homeless men can live in dignity when they are in our shelter. They finally have a safe and clean environment where they can focus on their health, recovery, housing, and restoring their lives.
Now we just need your help.
This year, it will cost $1.3 million to run this 24/7 shelter for over 400 men. Keep reading to learn more about how you can make a transformative gift today.
How You Can Help
Our goal today is to raise $220,000 by December 10th and we’re counting on you to help us make that a reality. Your gift today will help provide 24/7, safe shelter for vulnerable homeless neighbours in the new Herb Jamieson Centre.
Every dollar you contribute today goes twice as far thanks to the government match. Please consider making a special gift to our most important campaign of the year.
This is your opportunity to invest into the life of someone who feels heartbroken, discarded, and lost. You can speak hope into their life by inviting them through the doors of a beautiful, brand-new shelter where they can find refuge from the cold and restoration from a life of hopelessness.
It’s a new chapter of hope for the homeless — and you can help write this story by generously giving today so that the doors to shelter can be open for all. Thank you for your faithful commitment to this cause, and most importantly, to the vulnerable in our midst.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” – Matthew 25:35-36
