“Having the opportunity to offer a hand up, a sense of hope, and ongoing hope for tomorrow is truly a blessing.” – Marissa, Ottawa PADS Program Director
Ottawa PADS Shelter is a 50-bed homeless shelter that provides shelter, meals, and other services to those in need.
Ottawa PADS is open to serve clients from 5pm-9am daily from September 1st-May 31st. Click here for more information on the services we provide.
In order to provide for our clients, we rely on both monetary and supply donations from our community. View our complete ‘needs list’. We will thankfully accept donations at any time, but the best time to drop by is weekdays between 10am-2pm.
We could only provide a fraction of the services we provide without our amazing volunteer crew. We are always seeking valuable volunteers. We offer a volunteer information and training session every Wednesday at 4pm. To learn more click here.
We enjoy communicating with our community, and often share our needs, success stories, and information about homelessness on our Facebook page, Ottawa PADS. To connect with us, like us!
