News, Articles, Essays and Statistics

Before any of us can effectively help others, whether by our prayers, by hands-on involvement or by being a voice on their behalf, we first need to become better informed regarding the circumstances and issues touching their lives.

Here, in this section of our website, you will find essays, articles, reports, news stories, and other writings which deal with poverty, homelessness, mental illness, abuse, addictions and a range of other issues pertinant to our work amongst Canadas innercity community.

We are committed to regularly posting relevant, well-researched, informative material using reputable and recognised experts as our sources.
