Baby Kandes, who is part of our First Care program smiles for us!
In 2017, MAZON Canada generously donated funds to the Haven specifically designated to purchase formula and food for the babies in our First Care program. MAZON Canada's donation was of great benefit, giving the Haven the ability to keep the shelves consistently stocked with formula and baby food for our families who need extra help to feed their babies. One mom shares, "It's an honour and a pleasure to receive this food for my baby. Thank you so much!!"
Oral health is sometimes easily cast aside as issues like food, shelter and other basic needs take precedence. So, the Haven has partnered with the Canadian Academy of Dental Health to provide our clients with no cost dental screenings and referrals to Public Health or no cost clinics.
The Ontario Pet Loss organization provides support to people who are grieving the loss of their pets. At these difficult times many pet owners have unused pet food left in their cupboards and don't want to throw it away but don’t know what to do with it. Now, through OPL, they can donate their pet food to the Haven's Food Bank.
When we heard this touching story, the Haven provided new shoes, as well as some clothing from our Clothing Boutique and survival kits from our Hope with Wheels program. Dave continues to create a relationship with Sam and hopes that someday he will find a home.
Our Hope with Wheels program was awarded a $1000.00 grant this year after a 6 member team from RBC College Street joined our Hope with Wheels team.
