Welcome to Chalmers Community Services Centre

Chalmers Community Services Centre is a not for profit organization that provides emergency food, clothing and support without prejudice to the members of our community.

We provide those in need with a safe, non-judgmental environment where they have access to food and clothing, are able to meet new people, and receive the support they need to take their next steps forward.

  • We welcome anyone who is unemployed, underemployed, between jobs, or waiting for compensation.
  • We do not use means testing. That means the people who use our service never have to prove they require help.
  • Chalmers is a violence and judgment-free center. We offer a safe and comforting place for people who have run out of options.
