Vision

Matthew House Ottawa is a faith-based, transformative model of excellence caring for Ottawa’s marginalised population.

Mission

Matthew House Ottawa is a faith-based, volunteer-driven, charitable organization that helps Ottawa’s marginalised population to establish connected, safe, healthy, and dignified homes within our community. We do this by:

•Providing shelter, food and refugee settlement assistance, including volunteer opportunities, in a family atmosphere to refugee claimants so that they may begin their journey to independence as members in Canadian society.

•Distributing quality used furniture and household goods to Ottawa’s marginalised population.
