About Souls Harbour Rescue Mission Halifax

Mission Mart is no ordinary thrift store. It's a social enterprise where 100% of the proceeds go to provide food, shelter, and programming through the programs of Souls Harbour Rescue Mission. That's why we've chosen it as our walk hub for our Halifax walk.


Take a walk with us around the Mission Mart neighbourhood to help raise funds and awareness for men, women and children struggling with food and housing insecurity. We anticipate 300 Souls Harbour friends to take this Bayers Lake neighbourhood by storm! This will be the walk to remember.


Money raised will be used in our programs and services:


===> 400 meals served every day in Halifax, Bridgewater & Truro

===> 7 women and children living in community at our Womens Home

===> 12 women and children in affordable supportive housing

===> 9 men in our Life Recovery Program

===> 25 adults with disabilities in our MART training program

===> Expansion into our Sydney, Cape Breton location on Ferry Street


After a long, long wait, we are thrilled to be participating in the Coldest Night of the Year again. Covid may slowed us down, but we have the victory, and we are back, baby!


But we also recognize, that there are some who are high risk, and not yet comfortable walking outside in groups yet. To that end, we would love to have you participate virtually. Create a team, raise funds, and walk on your own or with your bubble. Connect with Melanie at mhack@shrm.ca and she will make sure you feel like a part of the team through our social media campaigns.


Those not able to join a team are encouraged to make a donation to our Halifax Home Team, Souls Harbour Heroes, lead by our CEO, Michelle Porter!
