About Lionhearts Ottawa Stittsville

Driven by a deep desire to see all people living with human dignity, we at Lionhearts invite everyone to join us in a safe, warm, and welcoming environment without any judgement.


Throughout the winter we provide hot food, warm clothes, hygiene supplies, and a place to get out of the cold. As much as these practical acts of love are imperative for survival, it really is about creating community and social connection year round.


Poverty knows no social boundaries and so we serve every demographic including senior citizens, families, single parents, children and people living with mental illness. We all need support at some point in our lives and some of us have greater challenges to overcome.
