Caring for our neighbours.

We provide numerous outreach programs

Next Steps

The people who are right in our neighbourhood and on our doorstep are those we feel great compassion for. The homeless, street-involved, and vulnerably-homed are provided with hot coffee, a snack, and social interaction with people truly interested in their lives, interests, and well-being. During this time, relationships are built and potentially life-altering connections are made. Participants interested in taking the next step into a more stable, sustainable, healthy, fulfilling lifestyle are connected with NW Social Navigators who help them successfully enter and continue with various life-giving community resources such as: detox, medical care, safe housing, addiction treatment, employment, and much more. On Thursdays they are welcomed to “Story Hour” for a chapel service in language they can relate to.

Whether in winter or summer, the real warmth we give is to the heart through intentional conversations and friendship.


The Next Steps program is supported in part by The Community Foundation of Thunder Bay and The United Way of Thunder Bay.
