The Ottawa Booth Centre is much more than a shelter. We run residential addiction treatment programs such as Stabilization, and Anchorage Addiction Recovery.
We also offer the Residential Life Skills program. It enhances clients’ abilities and equips them with problem-solving strategies. Clients return to the community with new coping skills.
Our Booth Centre operates several housing-related programs, funded by the city of Ottawa, that aim to end homelessness through a Housing First strategy of locating and renting housing units, and helping new tenants adapt and become housing self-sufficient, including those previously engaged in street living.
The Community Family Services provides budget and financial-management counselling and banking-related support, runs an emergency food pantry, and operates a fund that helps tenants pay their outstanding heating bills in winter. We also run an emergency hostel for men 18 years of age and older.
Motivated by Christ-like values and beliefs, The Salvation Army Ottawa Booth Centre provides effective, client-centered programs and services, which respond to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the vulnerable in our community.
