Families and individuals in our community go without proper food, shelter, and essential medical care every day for a variety of different reasons. We here at the Lighthouse Christian Ministries take great pride in offering support services to benefit these members of our community. We believe in equality, and treat all members of society with respect and dignity. Our goal is to help those in need regain their basic necessities of life and personal dignity. After paying rent through Ontario Works or Ontario Disability Support Plan, many people have no finances left for food and other essential needs. We provide a warm and safe place to enjoy a meal, which is free of judgment and ridicule.

Lighthouse Christian Ministries operates as a soup kitchen, which is a bit of a misnomer because we cook a lot more than soup! We serve three hot meals a day, everyday, for anyone who needs a meal. Men, women, children… Everyone is welcome.

The Lighthouse also has 14 beds and operates as a shelter in the evening to ensure men, who have no place of their own to stay, have a warm, comfortable place to sleep. Our guests stay here, have a hot meal, and we help them by providing any necessary resources.
