Mission, Vision & Values
As a Christian humanitarian organization, Siloam Mission connects the community in order to alleviate hardships and provide opportunities for change for those affected by poverty and homelessness.
Siloam Mission is a place for support, healing and recovery. We see a world where the partnerships we build help to eliminate poverty and homelessness.
LOVE: We regard all people as created equal and loved by God. We are inclusive and treat all people with respect and dignity. We actively work towards reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people.
SERVICE: From the abundance of God’s love, we find our call to partner with and serve others.
TRANSFORMATION: We provide progressive person-centered services, aimed at transforming the lives of all those we encounter, including those we serve, volunteers, supporters and each other.
STEWARDSHIP: We are thankful to those who enable our work; we carefully steward their gifts by maximizing the impact of their support.

Hope, Recovery & Transition
Hope begins with a meal in our Drop-In Centre, and a safe place to sleep in Hannah’s Place Emergency Shelter.
Recovery starts in our Saul Sair Health Centre, our one of a kind Arts & Wellness program, and Spiritual Care program.
Transition happens with the help of counselling, housing placement, and job readiness programs, helping those who are experiencing poverty and homelessness regain the meaningful and fulfilling life that we all deserve.
Using an individualized approach with each person who walks through our doors, we walk alongside on their journey toward the life they hope for, and provide a community that will be there for them as long as they need.
