Welcoming Arms is a Christian, ecumenical charity. Our mandate is to serve low-income/marginalized members of our community by providing supportive programs directed at our visitors individual needs. Programming includes: community meals and gardening, Christmas assistance, Income tax preparation and a once a month program called Bridging the Gap that provides visitors with grocery gift cards, transit tickets, basic toiletries and referrals to other community agencies and services. Welcoming Arms is a place of friendship, hope, a caring listening ear; where all are treated with dignity.
We seek to help those in need in our community to experience a fuller participation in society by providing social, economic, and spiritual support.
