    From the Aviva Community Fund page:


    After founding a large Rescue Mission in Regina, Saskatchewan, Ken and Michelle Porter sold their home & all they owned, packed a few mementos into the back of their Matrix, and drove 4000 km across Canada, strangers in their new home of Halifax. There they founded Souls Harbour, a Rescue Mission where men, women and families can drop in for a meal and a cup of coffee. Itís a place where guests can access free clothing or household items, free local calls, free wifi, a haircut, a listening ear, or even to get their taxes done.
