Ladies’ Social

Thursdays 11 am - 2 pm

At our ladies’ social, we relax with a cup of tea, have conversation and nurture creativity. We typically socialize over a craft or an event planned through partnership with friends and staff.

We have ventured so far as to pick vegetables on a Flamborough farm enjoying tea and biscuits with our generous hosts. We have picnicked together in Birge Park. We spent an afternoon learning about First Nations peoples of Canada with a blanket exercise.

Volunteer your time – Women are welcome to come and build into the lives of those who attend.


This week, we are most in need of...

Men's casual pants such as jeans, joggers, sweats, and khakis


Helping Hands Street Mission is a very safe and open place to be honest and not be judged by the people who attend and run it. Everyone is treated the same. The volunteers actually care about everyone that they meet. I have been encouraged to finish my school, and they hold me accountable to the time it will take me. May god bless all those involved with HHSM.


My daughter Abby and I have been visiting the mission for the past 9 years. We have always been greeted with warm smiles. We both enjoy attending Mama's Place on Thursday afternoons where we can connect and learn with other women in the community. The ladies have made us feel special and accepted. This group of volunteers have always been eager to lend an open ear and a helping hand.

We are looking for...

    The following essential items:
  • Fall and winter clothes - men's and women's casual pants, sweaters and shirts
  • NEW Underwear, socks, undershirts, bras
  • Shampoo (regular and small sizes), toothbrushes and razors
  • Sheets, blankets, sleeping bags
