Serving Opportunities & Partnerships

On Monday nights each winter, we open our doors to those in our community experiencing homelessness or in need of food and clothing. All who come leave with a lunch for the next day and transportation tokens. For those guests who stay overnight, beds are provided for a safe, warm place to sleep and breakfast is provided in the morning.
The Crisis Pregnancy Centre
The Crisis Pregnancy Centre has served women in the Markham-Stouffville area for more than 20 years. They provide free care and support to women in unplanned pregnancies, post-abortion, and who are involved in single parenting.
The Markham Foodbank
The leanest time of the year for Canadian food banks is July – August. The Markham Food Bank has difficulty providing the minimum amount of grocery support during those months and can give very little variety. Our annual June food drive helps fill this gap!
Centre for Dreams
The Centre for Dreams is a place in the Markham community where adults with developmental disabilities can come to build relationships and enhance their lives through education in life skills, academics and vocational training.
The Language Cafe
The Language Cafe provides informal drop-in opportunities where you can enjoy a beverage and snack while practising English with fluent locals and other newcomers. We meet the 2nd and 4th fridays from 10am to 12pm. All levels of English speakers are welcome!
