Support Shepherds of Good Hope’s greatest needs.

Shepherds of Good Hope is on the front line of the toxic drug crisis, the housing and homelessness crisis, and the rise of poverty in the City of Ottawa. We serve thousands of people each year who come to us in their time of need. Shepherds of Good Hope provides innovative programs and services that serve homeless and vulnerable people who live with trauma, struggle with mental health challenges, and addictions.

We’re there from the first time someone walks through our doors hungry, cold, and alone. And we’re there for their successes; from reconnecting to their family and to the resources they need, to moving into permanent homes with supports and leaving the shelter system behind for a brighter future

Please support someone who needs your help today. Without you, none of our work is possible.


Joamie’s parents provided a loving home and with nine sisters and seven brothers she was never alone.

“Christmas was a huge celebration in our house,” she remembers. “My brother was born on December 25th so my family would invite the entire community – you couldn’t walk anywhere without running into a sandwich!

Her life took an unexpected turn when she had to leave her hometown to escape a bad relationship. She was 48 years old and felt it was her only choice. Joamie came to Ottawa and stayed with her sister, then cousin, but it was short term. She soon found herself with nowhere to live. She struggled and turned to alcohol to cope.

This is when Joamie found Shepherds of Good Hope. She was welcomed and offered not just shelter, but support and understanding.



Homes for all. Community for all. Hope for all.
