About Why Not City Missions

From 2002 to 2022 Why Not City Missions has served the community of Brantford, Ontario, meeting the needs of the most vulnerable in our community.  In a safe and inclusive environment, we seek to eliminate barriers, and foster the social development, personal growth and empowerment of homeless and at-risk youth in Brantford.

We are in a period of unprecedented growth!  In 2021 we also started tackling the issue of youth homelessness directly by launching Why Not Youth Housing and opening our first house for young men, Charlie’s Place. In the same year, we established our youth church program called Encounter, where we have been excited to see some of our youth learn about and encounter the God who knows and loves them.
