About Evangel Hall Mission:

Since 1913, Evangel Hall Mission’s (ehm’s) mission is to help build community with poor, homeless, and socially isolated people in Toronto through support, services, and advocacy. Its 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 F2016, Evangel Hall Mission served 63,456 hot meals and provided 660 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. As part of youth programs, 9,250 transit tokens were given to students.

In 2009, it established the ehm Health and Dental Clinic for homeless and low-income people, and in F2016, the Clinic had 715 visits and 67 new patients. 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 provided 942 consultations which resulted in 110 homeless people finding housing. The ehm residence had 5 new tenants in F2016 and 100 tenants total, including 11 families and 10 children.
