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

Markham-Stouffville

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

Markham

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

Markham

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.

In working toward the restoration of my community, I will be serving alongside my co-workers with UrbanPromise as a Ministry Supervisor. I will be involved in providing the youth of my community with a safe place to come after school, reinforcing the importance of education, modelling Godly behaviour and sharing Biblical truths. I will be dedicated to building and maintaining relationships not only with the kids, but with their whole families as well. I hope to share with them the things I have learned from being a child in the program, to being a StreetLeader, to now onboarding full time, all while also learning from the youth and community I serve.
