Our Resource Centre offers a safe comfortable place where families can enjoy a warm cup of coffee or tea and relax while selecting from various articles of clothing and household items, linens, ect., at no charge in order to help their financial burden. It is here that we can build an ongoing relationship with the client. They will then feel at ease to discuss some of their core problems that led them to the situation they are in. We are then able to determine if and what programs may assist the client. Often we have a program that they can access to ease their burden. Other times we are able to advocate for them or refer them to other resources within the community. Other times they simply need assistance with clothing or household items and friendly people to associate with. Whatever the situation, this is a safe, confidential, compassionate environment for them where we can assist them with their needs and help them develop skill sets to establish a more positive and productive future.



Donations of clothing items, linen, and towels are always welcome in our Resouce Centre which is open in the lower level of Burton Ave, United Church.
