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

    • OIM Street Outreach volunteers provide food and clothing to Veterans in need in the downtown core ​

  • Door Outreach

    • Every Tuesday & Thursday from 1-3pm 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 10:30am - 12:30pm 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
