Women and Family

The Women and Family Ministry serves women and their families with the love of Jesus Christ through practical help such as food, clothing, counseling, and referrals, bringing hope and restoration to their lives.

How we can help

Our services meet the needs of men, women, children and entire families. While some families have temporarily fallen on hard times, others face the many challenges of beginning a new life in Canada.

Clients from more than 130 countries have visited us for help. Women and families from Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Portugal, China, Ukraine, Colombia, Jamaica, Italy, Mexico and Russia have all found their way to the Mission.

We interview individuals and families to assess their situation and see how we can best be of service. If your family is in need, please call our appointment line at (416) 923-3916 to arrange an interview. Please be assured that all information will be kept confidential.
