What We Do
Ground Zero provides food and essential supplies for the unhoused in the Abbotsford, BC, area. Ground Zero is a ministry of mercy and compassion, loving without judgement. We help people find the next step towards recovery and wholeness.
Haircuts for the homeless
Each Sunday Joseph Sikora and his team provide free outdoor haircuts for the unhoused.
For Sikora it’s more than a haircut—it’s an opportunity to talk to those with addictions or mental-health issues and to really understand them.
“While they’re sitting in our chair, we get a chance to tell them our story and they get to tell us theirs,” he explains.
Food and supplies for those in dire need
The little girl without shoes in the winter. The woman making a home of an abandoned truck trailer. The 50s couple in a collapsed tent on Christmas Day. These are hurting people who have had bad breaks and made mistakes. They need our compassion and our direct help.
Every Wednesday and Sunday, Ground Zero volunteers give out up to 80 meals a day and essential living supplies to Abbotsford’s homeless population, including bottled water, gloves, socks, underwear, and hygiene products.
We believe that everyone deserves a second chance. We believe that all life matters and that there is an inherent dignity for all. Our vision is to re-instill dignity, confidence, and renewed purpose in those who need it most. Our ultimate goal is to get people off the streets and into new situations that benefit their lives.
We are grateful to all who support our work at Ground Zero. We are always in need of basic supplies like bottled water, non-perishable foods, winter weather clothing.
Our greatest organizational need is a delivery van to transport supplies from donors to those in need. If you or someone you know has a gently used van that you’d like to donate, please contact us today at Joseph@GZMinistries.ca.
