Thank you to the dear family of Reno DaMaren for choosing to support our mission, Guelph Auto Parts for sponsoring the day, Hitachi Truck Mfg. for the use of their parking lot, and everyone who came out and participated on July 8th!

Official Opening of Supportive Housing

  It was wonderful to see our community partners and supporters out for the official ribbon cutting at Supportive Housing, now to be known as Emily's Place! We are grateful for the continued support of our affordable housing units. Affordable housing is crucial to protect the vulnerable in our community.
