Family Services

Walking Through Life Together

Our goal for Family Services programming at KSM is to respond to the needs of individuals and families in our community that are struggling to make ends meet. We are committed to coming alongside them so that they can share a sense of belonging and community and provide for themselves and their families. By responding with love and compassion, and by providing practical support for their immediate needs, we can help reduce their financial burden, and help them move to a more stable and sustainable situation.

  • We engage families through food and meal programs.
  • We connect families to services and resources in the community.
  • We inspire families by providing care, compassion and practical support.

Our Family Programs Include...

We are excited about partnering with CAP Canada to offer a free money management and debt counselling program.

The Neighbour Care Network is a shared initiative of local church compassion ministries, organized, facilitated and supported by Kerr Street Mission. The goal of the initiative is to build the capacity of the community to care for their neighbours in need.

Believing that fresh nutritious food is critical to the health and welfare of a family KSM continues to work with the greater community to access and distribute healthy food options for families in need.

One of our goals at KSM is to provide families with consistent, healthy food to help increase their well-being. Our Choose Fresh program does just that!

Kerr Street Mission is not just a food bank. We provide care and community support for those who are in need, and sometimes that means we need to go beyond our doors to feed our neighbours.

Community meals are one of the highlights for our families, but due to COVID-19 we had to move away from our sit down community meals to a “take-out” model.

Eating together has become an integral part of what we do. Gathering around the table, sharing food, conversation and time together is a wonderful way to connect people and build community.

Our Christmas Wonders and Beyond program has rallied the community to ensure families in need are able to celebrate this special season.

Here is how our Core and Partner Programs fit together
