Poverty exists in Montreal. Montreal has one of the highest urban poverty levels in Canada. Individuals, children, seniors, single-moms - thousands of people every week - must resort to the city's food banks and community kitchens in order to meet their most basic needs.
Homelessness and poverty are not just a question of money. The most underprivileged are often disadvantaged in many ways. Those who are lacking food are all too often equally deprived of affection, friendship, and direction and meaning in their lives. The purpose of the Mission is to help and meet all these important needs. Since 1990 we are a non-profit humanitarian organization located in the Pointe Saint Charles area of Montreal, offering hot meals, a food bank, a community store.
