We Live in the Shadows is driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all.


We are community-driven and strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits. We support other grassroots organizations to bring the most help to those in need as we can! 


We are not strangers to addiction, mental health issues, loss and through our collective experiences, we are able to bring compassion and understanding to our street friends. 


Our mission for Shadow Café is to create a space for local artists, musicians and support our local businesses. We raise funds through special events, artwork sales, resale of local good and sales from the café to support Ottawa's marginalized. We will provide a free space for musicians and artists to showcase their work. We will operate a dry café that is non-denominational, all-inclusive and pet friendly. 

We are community focused and strive to make a better place for all.
