A place of refuge!

For the past 31 years the Elgin Street Mission has served the Sudbury community. The Mission provides physical, emotional and spiritual nourishment to all who enter its doors.

The Mission is a Christian based non-profit, non-political registered charity funded by donations from individuals, businesses and churches. It does not receive any regular government or city funding but functions through the generosity of its community partners. This generous support enables us to offer valuable services at no cost to our clients.

The Mission provides two meals a day (breakfast & supper) 365 days a year. With 90, 000 meals being served yearly, as well as clothing, showers, laundry facilities and a safe refuge in times of need. Individuals and families can also access counselling services, spiritual development and referrals in a non-judgmental community atmosphere.

Although hope begins with a meal, the Mission’s goal is not just to feed those experiencing homelessness, but be a positive change agent in the lives we encounter.


When hope is hungry
everything feeds it.

Elgin Street Mission has been on the frontlines with our communities most vulnerable citizens since 1989. It has seen continued growth in services and favor within the Sudbury community.

A wide array of services are provided to address both daily and critical needs of those experiencing homelessness.
