The Challenge

Got a big-hearted business, workplace, group, church, or community? Step up and join the Challenge to compete for your local pride in support of CNOY. Check the National Challengeboard to see more!

About The Ottawa Mission

The Ottawa Mission has 17 programs to meet the needs of our most vulnerable community members, including: emergency food and shelter; health services; mental health; addiction treatment programs; hospice care; dental services; housing services; educational support; job training; spiritual care; and clothing to thousands in need in our community.


The impact of the ongoing pandemic has been especially hard on those who are homeless and precariously housed, with many services in these communities closed or only partially reopened to minimize the risk of Covid‐19.


The pandemic has also been difficult for many people who were before just making ends meet. Given the collective impact of Covid‐19 on people’s mental health, finances and perceived risk of homelessness, The Ottawa Mission expects to remain the first place of refuge for increasing numbers of vulnerable

people for the next several years.
