New Apartments Coming Soon!
Last month we were thrilled to announce that we were being allotted 2 apartments in the new development on Talbot Street. We can now confirm that we will actually have 4 one-bedroom apartments. This is an incredible opportunity for our current residents to take the next step to independent living. You, our community, were outstanding with your donations over the last two month so we have the majority of items that we need to furnish these units, but there are a couple of items that we are still looking for.
We are asking that the items being donated are gently used, and in good repair. Donations must be pre-approved by our Director of Housing, Jeannette Singh. For more information please call Jeannette at (519) 631-9800 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We appreciates your generosity!
If you wish to find out more information about our current needs or if you wish to make a donation, please complete the form below or contact our Housing Case Manager at (519) 631-9800.
Please note inquiries will be reviewed within 2-3 business days.
