Community developmentReligion and spirituality

We assist the local churches to recruit volunteers from their congregations to help meet practical needs of people in our community through our drop-in centre "The Fountain" where people find Friendship, Opportunity, Understanding, Nurturing, Teaching, Acceptance and New Hope. The Fountain consists of: a cafe where healthy soups, snacks and coffee are always available, a thrift exchange of gently used household items and clothes, a community kitchen where classes, such as cooking, budgeting, CPR are taught and an activities room where crafts, knitting, puzzles, books etc. are always available. We are available to listen to people and assist with helping them find the best help possible for them. We co-operate with agencies, churches, organizations and do not duplicate their services. Everything is offered for only a donation and only if individuals are able. Our resource centre is managed by volunteers who take phone calls from people needing assistance with drives or help that a 'good neighbour' would help with.
