About River City Vineyard

River City Vineyard is a church and community center in Sarnia, Ontario; serving our city with as many areas of community outreach as possible. Within our building we operate a homeless shelter, emergency food bank, shower program, free store and community garden. Our current homeless shelter houses 25 beds. All of these beds are almost always full. We are in the process of expanding our shelter to accommodate 40 additional beds, including 15 beds for women.

River City Vineyard holds the belief that it is every individuals basic right to have access to food and shelter; we are very passionate about helping those in need in every way that we can! The proceeds from our CNOY campaign will be going towards our shelter expansion, so that we can continue to expand our efforts to help the most marginalized and vulnerable in our community. These individuals are close to our hearts; it is an honour to be able to do what we do!
