January is the very first month of the new year and this year it has been a bitterly cold and harsh month for the people who live on the street. At Shepherds of Good Hope we do everything we can to make sure that those in our care are kept safe and warm. We will always find space to house those in need and we will never turn anyone away.
We hand out extra hats, mitts, scarves and socks in all of our programs including the Soup Kitchen. We encourage people to come in from the cold on off hours and we patrol the property and surrounding properties for those who may need convincing to come inside.
The winter weather can be exceedingly harsh but we will always make sure that no one need suffer from the cold.
To ensure that we can continue to care for the most vulnerable men and women in our city, I am happy to announce that we are hosting the third annual Taste for Hope on March 25th, from 6-9 pm at Ottawa City Hall, Jean Piggott Hall. This exciting gastronomic event will host eighteen renowned chefs, from Ottawa’s finest restaurants, serving sumptuous delicacies to those in attendance throughout the evening. A selection of fine wines will be served. There will be a live and silent auction as well. The funds raised by this event will be used to continue to serve the hundreds of people that come through our doors every day.
Tickets are available by clicking HERE or by calling Judy at (613) 789-8210 ext. 223. We hope to see you there!
