Siloam helps alleviate the hardships of the poor and homeless in Winnipeg’s inner city, assists in transitioning them into self-sufficient lifestyles. Programs and services include meals and clothing, art and computer skills, employment training, an emergency shelter and a health centre.
Decided at Thanksgiving to stay open all week to bring more stability into lives of homeless patrons staying weekends. A CHVN radio-thon raised $101,000 up 2/3s over last year, God supplies.
Siloam is securing an 87 unit rooming house to provide “dry supportive housing” which needs upgrading. They are also working on 40 unit transitional housing facility next door.
