Harvest House Ottawa

Located in a rural setting, Harvest House is in the greenbelt of Ottawa South, at 3435 Ramsayville Road. The success of the residents of Harvest House is in part due to our rural location and distance from their former lifestyles in the city.

Harvest House adheres to an abstinence philosophy, including no smoking.

Thousands of men have come through the doors of Harvest House hoping for a new start. When people care enough to help, you are given the strength to overcome any obstacle. Harvest House is a place where people care.

Harvest House serves young men between the ages of 16 and 30, many of whom have been unsuccessful with other treatment programs. Harvest House does not turn away those who have histories of relapse, criminal activity or imprisonment.

The Mission of Harvest House Ministries is to rehabilitate young men who are chemically dependent, to instill in them self-discipline, and to reintegrate them into society by an inner change brought about by faith in Jesus Christ.

Matthew House Ottawa/Furniture Bank Ottawa

Matthew House Ottawa is a volunteer-driven charitable organization that helps newly-arrived refugee claimants and others in need establish safe, healthy, and dignified homes and community within the National Capital Region.  Our primary objective is to facilitate the independence of refugee claimants and marginalized people to allow them to thrive within Canadian society and have the basic life and employment skills necessary to live independently. Our role continues as they face the challenge of adapting to their new community through social activities, visitation and support.

The Furniture Bank of Ottawa was originally established to support refugees with donated household furnishings; however, the needs of a broader community emerged and the Bank was soon providing good quality donated furniture and household items to clients referred by social agencies and support groups throughout the city. The Furniture Bank currently helps more than 50 families furnish their own homes each month.
