BEYOND THE STREETS WELLAND
WHAT WE DO
Making A Difference
Every Thursday evening from 6:00-7:00pm we serve a hot meal at the Welland Market Square. We offer a free Hot meal, fresh produce, non-perishable food items, clothing, sanitary items, and hygiene products. Our Thursday meals are so much more than a "Thursday Meal". We have the opportunity to offer a sense of community, love, and support for so many.
During our Weekly Street Outreach, we are able to get to know many of our street friends on a much deeper level.
This is a time when we hear many of their story’s, we share moments worth celebrating, and times of grief. Street Outreach allows us to meet our street friends where they’re at. It allows us to be consistent, reliable, and loving people in their lives, who care about them beyond a “Thursday Meal”. This is when we are able to identify those experiencing homelessness, and not only offer snacks, hygiene products, bus passes, water... but we seek to connect people with the services they may need to achieve their greatest potential.
People with poor Mental Health have a greater risk of experiencing homelessness, and in turn, homelessness makes you more susceptible to suffer from mental health issues. Many of our team members have amazing relationships with most, if not all, the individuals experiencing homelessness in Welland. We will attempt to de-escalate the situation, assess the need, and help the person in need.
