An Overview of the Old Brewery Mission

OBM-McGill Project

The Old Brewery Mission began as a soup kitchen founded in 1889. As the needs of the homeless population in Montreal grew, programs and services were developed and made available to those in need.

Several factors contribute to homelessness. These include, but are not limited to poverty;  inability to pay rent;  stress associated with job loss;  family crisis;  drug or alcohol abuse; gambling addiction; mental illness; and physical ill-health.
