Ottawa Innercity Ministries, in partnership with Veterans Affairs Canada, offers practical support and a weekly drop-in for homeless and at-risk Veterans. We offer one-on-one support in a safe and welcoming community that follows all Ottawa Public Health’s COVID Protocols.

     The IVOS program consists of the following:

  • Street Outreach

    • Street Outreach happens 7 days a week, and we are actively seeking out and identifying Veterans by asking the question, "Have you served?"  This is the start of the process to help Veterans get back on their feet.  

  • Door Outreach

    • Every Tuesday & Thursday from 1-3 pm Veterans in need can come to the OIM Office (391 Gladstone Ave) and receive food, clothing and other supplies.​

  • IVOS Fellowship - open to ALL Veterans who want to be part of our community

    • We meet every Wednesday from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm at the OIM Office (​391 Gladstone Ave) for a  time of camaraderie with other Veterans

    • Recreational Activities

    • Access to literature, resources, a phone and computer

    • Lunch provided

No one understands a Veteran, like a Veteran.
