House Parents


Today House Inc. is a not for profit, overnight, emergency shelter in Steinbach, MB that is seeking house parents. Our mandate is to assist, empower and house individuals who have become homeless.

Successful applicants for Today House Inc.’s house parents will be required to host guests overnight from 5pm to 8am (1-4 guests), do light cooking (paid a per diem per meal), some basic housekeeping and supply monthly reports on shelter activities to Today House’s shelter coordinator.

House parents will be compensated with free accommodations, security system, cable, internet, and utilities relating to the shelter in lieu of pay.

House parents will have a separate, secure 1400 square foot, partially furnished living space on the main floor of the house which consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchen, laundry room and attached, single car garage.

Guests will occupy a separately entranced living space in the basement which includes 2 bedrooms, full bathroom facility and living area.

We envision successful applicants to be dependable, mature persons with compassionate hearts who want to make a difference. Successful applicants will be required to provide a Criminal Record and Vulnerable Sector Check.

Starting date: January 11, 2018 Application deadline: December 22, 2017

We thank all who apply and advise that only those selected for further consideration will be contacted.

Warm Words

The men and women we serve face big obstacles every day, and every day they face them head on, hoping that today will be better than yesterday. Here is how you can make a difference in their lives.

We also encourage you to send “Warm Words”, that’s a gift of supportive words.  Words that can encourage. Words that say they are not alone. Words that demonstrate to someone who is climbing enormous obstacles, that it’s worth the climb.

It is simple.  Just send your Warm Words to todayhouseinc@gmail.com and we’ll make sure they get to those who are staying with us. If you are inspired to send cards or pictures, that’s okay too.  You can send them to: Today House, Box 784, Steinbach, MB R5G 1M6

This does not cost you any money.  Your only commitment is to take a moment to jot down some thoughts.  That’s it.  It’s an opportunity for anyone to extend a helping hand, regardless of financial means.

A Volunteer’s Experience…
“Hearing stats of homelessness sounded so distant until I started volunteering at Today House. And when my wife and I got involved with Today House, it became reality. Prior to volunteering I found myself asking many questions and regularly talked to a colleague of mine, who volunteered there. Volunteering at a homeless shelter, I thought, would be complex and challenging. Well, I was wrong. The volunteer orientation as well as the close support by the very involved staff &  board of directors have made my volunteering easy. And one thing that works really well for my wife and I is the flexibility in the volunteering schedule. It has been absolutely inspiring to be a part of the genuine care the shelter provides to those in need. Ultimately, it has been a humbling yet meaningful experience to be of support to the less fortunate.”  Richard H.
