Homeless & Walk-In Program

Clothing and hygiene are very basic needs that are often over looked. Those who visit our store are treated with
respect and assisted in enhancing their quality of life.The homelessness
program provides walk in clients with:

· 1 free complete outfit (including shoes), 

· A hygiene package including all
necessities such as tooth paste, soap and other items as requested.

· 1 blanket or complete bed package.

· Reading material if desired.

If the client has a job interview or
funeral to go to proper formal clothing is also provided free of charge.

While, the Clothing Assistance is
operating, no individual in Thunder Bay has to worry about the expense of a new set of clothing.

Our Success Story...

 

In the past those staying at the Shelter House, sleeping outside, and those
between jobs have benefited from the Homeless Walk-In Program.

This program takes on a special
importance in the winter when jackets, and long underwear are a must for Thunder Bay’s cold  climate.

Through the Homeless Walk-In
Program even those who have no
money are able to put  together outfits of their own  choosing, an opportunity not found anywhere else in the City for those in need.

The large bank of clothing makes it easy to choose the style that people like, no one is forced to accept items that does not appeal too them, and there are thousands of items to choose from.
