Who We Are


The Grind Pembroke, in the heart of downtown, welcomes you to their newly renovated facility at 122 Pembroke Street West. We strive to be agents of change in our community through our coffee house, emergency shelter, and youth programs that run throughout the year. We are a non-profit, inter-denominational organization that demonstrates the love of Jesus “one cup, one smile, and one bed at a time”. We are more than coffee — we are community.

The Grind Coffee House

The Grind Coffee House is a trendy coffee shop that offers hot beverages, desserts, and a sense of community in downtown Pembroke. It is run by a committed team of volunteers and operates on a by-donation policy. It strives to provide individuals with hope and skills for life change through various programs throughout the week.

Coffee House: Monday –  Friday 10am until 2pm. Community Dinner twice per month (see events calendar below for date and time). Men’s Breakfast once a month (see events calendar below for date and time).

Youth Programs

Various youth programs are scheduled throughout the year so stay tuned! There is also an indoor Skate Park that operates above Giant Tiger every Saturday from November to April.

The Grind Refuge Homeless Shelter

The Grind Shelter offers temporary housing for emergency situations. There are three bedrooms, a washroom, and laundry facilities in a secured location. An intake worker and volunteers offer assistance throughout a period of homelessness by offering a support network and the ability to access the services individuals need to help themselves. Opening Summer 2016.
