About nightlight Canada

We believe that one of the most devastating and under-addressed forms of poverty is relational poverty. nightlight seeks to address this through adult drop-in centres, safe places to build meaningful relationships, where we invite in anyone, including those who would normally be excluded. We serve refreshments and offer a place for people to play games, chat, and build relationships.


Please help us serve to those are marginalized in our communities.
