About The Lighthouse Orillia

Ride with Orillia on September 30th

)


The Lighthouse Soup Kitchen and Shelter is a shining light in our community!

Our Vision: Guiding the vulnerable out of life's storms towards hope.

Our Mission: Providing a safe place that meets physical needs, gives spiritual hope and points the way to wellness.


At The Lighthouse we offer meals, a shelter for men, as well as partnering with other community organizations to provide support services for those in need.


Our soup kitchen serves lunch to 30-50 people every day for anyone who needs a meal. Men, women, children… Everyone is welcome! Our shelter has 14 beds for men who have no place of their own to stay. We provide three meals a day, a safe place and community resources for housing, employment and addictions counselling.


Building Hope is the community initiative to create a "homeless hub". We plan to build a new emergency shelter for men, women and families, as well as transitional housing, in partnership with other social service agencies to offer mental and addiction counselling, safe beds, community resources and more.
