Serving and Being Served by our Neighbours Living on the Streets of our City
WHO WE ARE
We are a small, gritty, entrepreneurial community of faith committed to serving the unhoused and under-housed people of Niagara Falls in reciprocal life-affirming relationships. We’ve had a mission presence on Queen Street since 2014.
In 2018, we founded Third Space Café, a not-for-profit social enterprise café. Together, we serve 50-75 warm, nutritious breakfasts each day, seven days a week, to the beautiful people of our city—our neighbors living on the street, in tents, doorways, abandoned spaces, under-serviced motels, and in overnight municipal shelters. More than just a breakfast service provider, we seek to be a warm inclusive community of connection and support.
To better meet the needs of our friends on the streets, we are committed to having a working relationship with our city, region, and every available support service in Niagara Falls.
We believe every person is created in the image of God and is inherently worthy of dignity and respect.
Jesus lived in a way that reflected deep care and compassion for underprivileged and pushed-away people. This is what prompts our mission and vision as we seek to embody and live out God’s love for the poor.
For this reason, we make a prioritized effort to know the names of our guests, welcoming each person when they walk through our doors.
What makes this mission possible?
The grace of God, and the generosity of many. It’s as simple as that.
We are thankful for opportunities to partner with other faith communities, businesses, individuals, and families who have a heart for people experiencing homelessness, and compassion for the issues connected to it.
