Holding Communities, Building Stability

Main Street Project provides a safe place of respite, shelter and support with dignity and without judgement. We help hold communities by supporting people living with addictions, homelessness, chronic and acute illness and mental and physical health issues. By addressing these principles in each individual’s journey, we contribute to the overall quality of life of our communities.

Our vision is that every individual has a safe place to be and the right to self-determination.
