About Kenora Fellowship Centre

We are a non profit Indigenous Ministry who provides daily outreach to the people who face various vulnerabilities and those often dealing with life and death situations related to lifestyle, circumstance, and health. Our daily Drop-in program and Transition housing and other temporary housing supports are our main programs. We also promote healing and reconciliation principles, healing initiatives and building capacity goals.


We need your help as we strive to make a huge difference in our community to continue our services. Please walk with us for the Coldest Night of the Year on February 25, 2023. Help us to mobilize collective compassion challenging stereotypes and working to build healthy and positive relationships. Coldest Night of the Year helps create awareness more about the challenges of homelessness and poverty to the forefront.


Our mission is to clothe the naked, help the helpless, to feed the hungry, love the unloved and guide the lost.
