About Evangel Hall Mission:

Since 1913, Evangel Hall Mission’s (ehm’s) mission has been to help build community with poor, homeless, and socially isolated people in Toronto through support, services, and advocacy. The charity’s programs include: an adult drop-in centre, a dental clinic, housing assistance, subsidized housing, youth programs, a cold weather emergency shelter, and women’s and men’s groups. 

In F2018, Evangel Hall Mission served 100,000 hot meals and provided 750 shelter bed nights between November and March as part of its Out of the Cold program. The Out of the Cold program is a cold weather emergency shelter run Tuesday nights in winter for up to 30 people, who are served dinner as well as breakfast the following morning.  

Every day, ehm feeds, clothes, and finds shelter for up to 200 men and women. Evangel Hall has proactive after-school and in-school programs to work with children and youth to help ensure they stay at school.  

In 2009, the charity established the ehm Health and Dental Clinic for homeless and low-income people, and in F2018, the Clinic had 710 emergency and preventative dental care visits. The demand for dental care is high and expansion is limited by their ability to find dental professionals to volunteer their services, as well as the financial resources to support additional clinic hours. 

As part of its housing programs, ehm helps those in need to access safe, stable, and affordable housing. In F2018, ehm provided 103 new clients with housing supports. In addition, the 84-unit ehm residence operated at capacity, with 110 tenants in F2018.
