If we are going to get serious about ending homelessness in Winnipeg, we need to dramatically increase and refocus the available services. Looking forward, Siloam Mission’s focus is on helping people to heal their wounds and transition out of homelessness, so that they may enjoy the happy, fulfilling, and independent life that everyone deserves. This is why we launched the Make Room in Your Heart Capital Campaign – breaking ground The Buhler Centre, 54,000 square feet of new space for this much-needed care, advocacy, and support. Donate today to help us grow!

Help us end homelessness

A Message from Jim Bell, CEO

Every day I come to Siloam Mission and see firsthand the struggle of a person experiencing homelessness. On any given day, some people in our community have become homeless for the first time. Some have lost their job, their battle with addiction and their ability to cope. Some are fleeing an abusive relationship. Some feel trapped in their own minds, struggling with a mental health illness that won’t leave them alone.

But no matter their situation, all the men and women who use the services of Siloam Mission are getting a second chance in life, because of you. I’ve seen it inside our doors, and I’ve seen it in the people who have moved on from Siloam Mission. But we have reached the limits of what we can do with our existing facilities. We need to do more.

That’s why we’re expanding by building the Buhler Centre, a 54,000 square foot building that will link our main facilities on 300 Princess Street to our new dining room and drop-in on Stanley Street. Construction of the new building is well underway, and we expect to open up the doors to the new facility in spring 2020. But right now, we still need to raise $1.5 million to finish the project and reach our $19 million goal. We need you to help us MAKE ROOM for so many more vulnerable people who just need some help to regroup, recover and move forward.

Your gift to the MAKE ROOM Capital Campaign will create transitional beds for people who need provisional shelter while they move forward, and a separate space in our shelter for women. It will provide space for crucial mental health services, helping men and women find spiritual and emotional healing. Your support will mend wounds by expanding the health centre, including providing recovery day beds. And it will provide dignified jobs by helping us start a social enterprise for people ready to enter the workforce again.

It’s time that every man and woman in our city has a safe place to sleep for the night. To get the help they need to overcome additions. To get a job and a place of their own. To access life-saving healthcare and mental health services. But we can only do it with your help. Please consider what you can do to MAKE ROOM for someone who just needs a hand up.
