GOING MOBILE

A little bit about what we do ... 

Going Mobile KW is

a volunteer community outreach group providing support to unsheltered people in Kitchener-Waterloo (KW) and those in need who are battling hunger. Our support includes the nightly delivery of a nutritional meal, warmth, kindness, and a caring ear with dignity and without discrimination or judgement.

Small items are also shared when possible, and we strive to help with special requests for necessities. Small items may include weather-appropriate clothing, sleeping bags, sleeping mats, blankets, hand warmers, tarps, over the counter medications, toiletries, etc., as inventory permits.

We serve people living on the streets, in government housing and at A Better Tent City, families in need, and provide awareness to the resources in the community to assist our less fortunate.

Food is individually packaged and served on a low key level in order to create a comfort zone without pressure. Many of our outreach group members are unsheltered or the loved one of those we serve.

This effort is funded solely by donations. The kindness and generosity of our community members is much appreciated. Monetary donations give us the most flexibility to purchase what we need. Donations of food, small items, facilities, and time from both individuals and businesses are always welcome. Going Mobile KW has established partnerships with local community resources and businesses, working together to help our most vulnerable.
