About Grace Ministries

Grace Ministries is a street ministry operating out of a storefront church, called Grace Place, in one of the poorest areas of Thunder Bay. Grace Place ministers to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the poor, addicted, homeless and socially marginalized.


Last year, Grace Place served over 45,000 meals and to date we have served over 335,000 meals, but it doesn't end with a tasty, free meal! For 10 years, Grace Place has also provided the valuable service of offering a safe, clean, warm place to be off of the streets. We also offer free clothing, hundreds of free haircuts, provide thousands of food hampers, and link many with the social services needed to better their situations.


This year for the first time Grace Place will be offering an emergency overnight shelter to the most vulnerable. This will be the first Out of the Cold program of its kind in Thunder Bay. This program will seek to aide those hardest to serve and remove the risk of death from freezing.
