About Lighthouse Mission

Nestled in the heart of Winnipeg, at 669 Main St, the Lighthouse Mission stands as a pillar of hope in the Point Douglas neighbourhood. As a registered Canadian charity and an embodiment of Christian principles, we extend our hand in partnership with various local organizations, churches, businesses, and compassionate souls. Our collective aim is clear: to extend hope, offer unwavering support, and infuse encouragement to those facing material challenges. We seek not only to provide but to restore – be it dignity, a sense of community, wise stewardship, or the deep spiritual bond with God.

Our distinctive approach to combating poverty is rooted deeply in relationships. We stand firm on the belief that a community’s true health and vitality can only flourish when its members nurture and maintain holistic relationships – with the Divine, with their fellow beings, with their inner selves, and with the environment they inhabit.

Operating and serving our community since 1911

A Glimpse into Our History

While today many recognize us for our charitable endeavours, few know that Lighthouse’s journey began as a local church back in 1911. The metamorphosis into a soup kitchen took place in the 1930s, a time when the world grappled with the Great Depression. As homelessness and unemployment surged dramatically, the urgent need arose for immediate food assistance. Through the winds of time, for over a century, Lighthouse has remained steadfast in its mission. We have been a constant source of nourishment – both physical and spiritual, clothing, prayers, friendship, hope, and boundless love for those seeking solace and support in our community.

Where We Are Today

Lighthouse Mission has steadfastly stood the test of time, continually adapting to address the emergent crises of the day while never losing sight of its foundational essence rooted in the local church community. Recognizing the duality of human existence – both physical and spiritual – we ardently believe that true care entails nourishing both facets of a person. With a legacy spanning over a century, the Mission not only offers the essential sustenance of food but also enriches lives with the warmth of friendship, the beacon of hope, the exuberance of joy, and the unconditional embrace of love.

As Lighthouse Mission evolves and expands, our unwavering commitment is to serve those who are marginalized: the impoverished and the homeless. Moreover, we continually invite and foster opportunities for the broader community and the public at large to join hands with us in this noble endeavor, ensuring that together, we can cast a brighter light and make a more profound difference.

Where We Are Headed

As we continue to assess and re-evaluate the evolving needs of our community, we recognize the pressing issue of addiction that many face. In response, we’re taking a significant stride forward: we are in the pioneering stages of developing and launching detox beds. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to addressing the multi-faceted challenges of our community members and supporting those in dire need. By offering a safe and supportive environment for detoxification, we aim to pave the way for recovery, transformation, and a brighter future for many. This is but one of the ways we remain attuned to the pulse of our community, ensuring we’re always positioned to offer the most meaningful and impactful support.
