In an article published in the Toronto Star, St. Felix Centre was described as a space "providing a safe haven for people - and their pets." 🐶... Pets and their human families have been staying with us as part of our 24-Hour Respite program to stay warm and safe through the cold season.  On top of being a 100% pet friendly space, our P.A.W.S. program (Pets: Accommodating Wishes and Support) provides pet owners with the opportunity to apply for monetary support for health care, neutering, different treatments, and prescription medications for their pets.  You can help us in supporting these amazing four-legged companions by making a donation towards our P.A.W.S. program. Every dollar makes a difference! Just follow the link in our bio to our website for more information.

We believe that each meal we prepare and serve, every smile we share with our guests, has the extraordinary potential to change a life.  Serving approximately 20,000 meals per month, our Community Meals program gives us the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with our guests so we can get to know them better and, by doing that, to support their individual needs in the best possible way.  If you want to know more about how to support the program, please follow the link in our bio.

St. Felix Centre is dedicated to providing compassionate service and safe, welcoming and respectful environment inclusive of all religions, genders, cultures and abilities.  Our guests are people experiencing complex challenges, such as homelessness, mental illness, and addictions.
What an amazing gift from C3 Church Toronto!  They were here throughout their entire LOVEweek, prepping and serving meals for our guests as part of our Community Meals program , and also volunteered in our Coldest Night of the Year walkathon. If that wasn't already enough, they have made this incredible monetary donation to support our programs and services.  We are speechless... Thank you guys! 🙏🏻 @c3toronto, you truly ROCK! 🙌

Today and everyday we celebrate the hard work and dedication of our wonderful female staff and volunteers! Talented women dedicated to make a difference in the lives of many people facing homelessness and other complex challenges. Here are some of them! 💪💪👏 👏
You are awesome! 👊
Did you know that our Community Meals program serves approximately 20,000 meals per month between our two 24-Hour Respite sites? 🍲🍵 Most of our guests are experiencing complex challenges, such as homelessness and extreme poverty.  Many of them have gone through very difficult or traumatic situations, and are in need of lots of support, love and compassion. ❤  Visit our website or follow our IG profile to know more about our work.  Please, do not hesitate to get in touch with us if you would like to help us make a difference!
"Thank you very much for keeping me warm and alive." We just received this postcard.  We agree that respite sites are far from being an ideal solution to homelessness in Toronto; but notes like this tell us we are in the right place to help those vulnerable members of our community in need of support and compassion.  Notes like this make us very proud of our staff! ❤  If you have supported St. Felix Centre in some way, shape or form, this poscard is also for you.
Thank you for helping us save lives! 🙏

Our first Coldest Night of the Year was a great success thanks to all of you! THANK YOU! We have no words to express our gratitude to all the amazing people who came out to walk with us - Your smiles energized the walk, and the funds you raised will make a huge impact in the lives of many people who are experiencing homelessness. A big THANK YOU to the many incredible volunteers who helped us setting up before the event; those who welcomed the walkers; the registration team and route marshals; those preparing and serving the chili to celebrate. You're AWESOME! We couldn't have done it without you! We surpass our initial goal by a lot and we are still getting some last-minute donations! All of you, participants and volunteers alike, are our 'Heroes-Without-Capes'! We hope to see all of you next year on the Coldest Night of the Year!

Thank you @cossetteen, Vision7 International, @mcdonaldscanada, Felician Services Inc, @schoolresto, and @libertycommons for sponsoring our walk!

Thank you @beanfieldmetroconnect and @punchcanada for helping us to promote the walk! And thank you @giftsforthehomeless for the care packages!
