TEMPORARY CLOSURE

It is with much regret that we have made the decision, effective immediately, to temporarily close our services out of concern for the safety and well being of both our clients and our volunteers.  We hope to reopen in early April when the COVID-19 restrictions are lifted but we must comply with the recommendations of the Province of Ontario.

Donations:

The best way to donate is online. If you wish, please go to this link: www.canadahelps.org/

Due to being closed, we will NOT be accepting any food donations. If you wish, they may be sent to the Food Bank.

Keep well!

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MESSAGE

"I want to be part of a community and workforce where people feel appreciated and are treated with respect and dignity. My aim is to continue the tradition of the Compassion Society being a place where clients feel supported and the volunteers and staff love coming in to help the more needy among us.  Some great people at Compassion Society inspire me and I hope I live up to their high expectations."

"I can't thank Compassion Society enough for helping me through a really tough time and getting me back on my feet..."
