About Us

Open Arms Mission is a volunteer-driven organization, meeting the physical and spiritual needs of our community. We started as a small food bank in the late 1980s and have grown to a multifaceted ministry. 

Our Mission Centre at 22 Fifth Street houses our food and personal care banks as well as our administrative offices.  Pre-COVID, we offered a daily drop-in centre, Saturday hot lunches, and other programs like sewing and Bible study classes.

At the Mission Centre our clients are treated respectfully and safe relationships are established with volunteers and staff.

Our Mission Centre team is available to talk, pray and help connect people with specific resources.

Our Ministry Campus at 933 Forks Road West in Wainfleet houses our ever-growing Food Hub, large garden, and many square feet of usable storage space. The Food Hub consists of 2 walk-in freezers, a walk-in cooler, a food processing room, and rows of racking that all help store the generous donations that come in before they are transported to the Mission Centre and other organizations within the Niagara Region.

Redeemed Lives, also known as The Barn, holds meetings every Wednesday evening at t 7pm. at the Ministry Campus. The group is open to men 14 years of age and up at any point in their spiritual walk.
