WELCOME TO THE BRUNSWICK STREET MISSION

COVID-19 STATEMENT (April 28th, 2021)

This morning at 8am province-wide restrictions were put in place that will remain in effect until at least May 12th. We know that people coming to Brunswick Street Mission need us and we will continue our most essential programs - Breakfast and Food Bank.

The Breakfast Program will continue to serve a hot meal from 715am to 830am Monday to Saturday to any person who arrives at our door.
The Food Bank will continue to serve households with food hampers on Thursday (registration must be completed Wednesday).
Our main office will be closed to all guests which means, until the lock-down is lifted, we can not offer clothing or complete tax returns. You are free to call 902-423-4605 with questions as we will be checking voicemail throughout the day.

OUTREACH PROGRAM STATEMENT

We know that our Outreach Program has supports that are needed during this time and we will be continuing to offer the following:

- ID Support for those needing ID to get additional help during the lockdown and remainder of the pandemic.
- Work Boots for those able to be working outside construction but need PPE.
Please call us at 902-423-4605 and book your appointment. If you are unable to call we are offering help on Wednesday's from 10am to 2pm. You can come down and, while we are not able to allow you in the building, we promise dignity and care during this time.
Everyone coming to Brunswick Street Mission must self-distance (6 feet/2 metres) and wear a mask. If you are in need of a mask to take part in a program we do have some to offer for free.

Thank you and keep safe.

Inspiring Hope and Dignity.

The Brunswick Street Mission seeks to inspire a better quality of life through a ministry of care that addresses physical, emotional, practical and spiritual needs for those experiencing poverty.

We serve people who struggle with poverty. Many are homeless, others are at risk of homelessness. There are individuals, couples, and families with children. Some work, others are on assistance, and others are on disability or pension support. Their backgrounds are incredibly varied but what they have in common is a daily struggle, and a future which may not hold much promise.

 

Brunswick Street Mission acknowledges that our offices are located in Kjipuktuk, which is located within Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq.
