leave a legacy of hope
Every day we serve, strengthen, and uplift those who are hungry, homeless, and hurting. Every day lives are changed for the better, and people walk out our doors with more hope than they had when they came in. Sometimes the changes are small, but the gifts of hope, and God’s love, are the greatest gifts any one of us can give. Hope Mission is committed to continuing this life-changing work long into the future. By leaving a legacy gift in your will, you can make a tremendous difference for years to come.
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.
Food & Clothing
We serve over 1,000 meals free of charge every day and distribute clothing and footwear to those in need. As well, Hope Mission’s Hope Bargain Shoppe provides clients with clothing, blankets and workwear while generating revenue which directly supports our programs and services.
Recovery & Spiritual Care
Hope Mission offers specialized care and treatment for men and women through year long faith-based addiction treatment programs. Counselors, chaplains and volunteers visit people on the street, in prisons, hospitals and other agencies.
24/7 Rescue Van & Health Centre
Our 24/7 Rescue Van provides basic human care, as well as spiritual, emotional and social support for people living on the streets and transports 4,000 individuals per year to shelters or our health centre. We have doctors and mental health professionals on site 5 days a week, all day which alleviates stresses on the health care system while providing accessible, affordable care to the homeless.
Children & Youth
Hope Mission supports kids and youth through an after- school recreation, mentoring and hot meal program for children; summer camps for inner-city children and youth; providing a safe place to connect at ministry centres across Alberta, and operating a year-round Youth Sports Centre.

WHY CONSIDER A LEGACY GIFT?
Our vision is of a better future where the men, women, youth and children who we serve come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour. As we plan for the future, many supporters who hold this same vision, choose to pledge their support in the future through their own legacy gift.
Legacies are vital to ensure we can continue to provide compassionate care and offer hope to hurting, hungry and homeless people in Alberta.
“Hope Mission showed me love. They really reflected Christ’s love to me. Life is good now, I’m happy. I feel loved. I have my kids in my life again. I feel complete as a person.”
“I’m grateful for finding Jesus in my life, for accepting him. The burdens that were so heavy in my heart just disappeared.”
“Now I know that as long as I continue moving forward, and better my life, that there will be hope in me”
“I have hope in my life now. It’s been literally the difference between life and death for me.”
