454 provides drop-in support services and social recreational activities
for individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We
offer a wide range of services to assist homeless men, women and
their children to transform their lives with respect and dignity.
Since 1954, Centre 454 has been working closely with the Anglican
Diocese of Ottawa, the municipal, provincial and federal governments,
local businesses, community and church groups, donors and volunteers.
Although Centre 454 provides support to an increasing number of
people, the demand far outweighs the support available. Without
Centre 454, many would be spending their days on the street or in
very unsafe conditions.

place for women and women with children. We provide a safe, supportive,
inclusive environment where women come together to empower each
other while nourishing the whole person.
Cornerstone provides emergency shelter and supportive housing for
homeless women in Ottawa.
Since 1983, Cornerstone has been working closely with the municipal,
provincial and federal governments, local businesses, community
and church groups, donors and volunteers. We offer a wide range
of services to assist homeless women to seek healing and new opportunities.
Although almost 1500 women become homeless in Ottawa each year,
Cornerstone can only help approximately 500 women due to shortage
of space. Without Cornerstone, many would be living on the street
or in very unsafe living conditions.
