EVEN ON THE COLDEST NIGHTS ☃️, ST FELIX CENTRE HAS THE WARMEST HEARTS! ❤
Walk with us, @st.felixcentre on February 23rd, 2019 as part of our very first ‘Coldest Night of the Year’ event! 👍
Join us on the ‘Coldest Night of the Year’ and walk to raise awareness about homelessness and, at the same time, raise funds to support our guests through St. Felix Centre's programs and services. It is a great opportunity for families to spend some quality time together while giving back to the community, and for businesses to have a fun team-building activity while showing their customers their social responsibility.
We walk because only the weather should be cold… Our hearts should always be warm to give hope to those in need of our compassion and support. Everyone is a neighbour! Join us on the Coldest Night of the Year!
Follow the link in our Bio for more information. 😉

Oliver had a steady job and was a proud single father for a long time. A few years ago, there were a series of sad events in Oliver’s life, all at the same time: his former partner fought for custody and he ended up losing the child he had raised, his mother died, and he witnessed a murder – an experience that left him traumatized. All of this took a significant toll on Oliver, and he struggled with severe depression. He says that drug abuse was the only way to numb the pain, and it was getting harder and harder to stop ... to come back. And he became homeless.
.
On one occasion, he recalls being arrested. Although he begged the officer who arrested him to loosen the handcuffs, the officer closed them so tightly that they broke his arm. They left him handcuffed for 4 hours before someone noticed how badly his arm was swollen. He was released without anyone making sure that his arm received adequate treatment, and, due to his addiction, he never followed the proper treatment for his injury, which caused a long term injury.
.
After years of using drugs and not having a home, someone referred him to St Felix Centre....

Stay tuned for more information on how to take part in this great and fun activity!

The staff and volunteers were busy preparing a special meal for our guests as we received the New Year together. Who better to bring in the New Year with than with our extended family! Our guests loved it!

Thank you for a 2018 supporting our guests... Thank you for caring for those who need so much of your love... Thank you for caring for our guests' awesome pets!...

We celebrate a 2018 of you helping us make a difference,  and we welcome a 2019 full of hope and compassion! Happy New Year 2019!
The huge Christmas tree in the St. Felix House is beautifully lit, shinning as a visible sign of our gratitude for the love and support you have shown to our guests in our 25 Augusta Ave. location, and now also to our new 24-Hour Respite site in Liberty Village. Our fundraising campaign, "Lighting the Way" will finish in three days, and we are a couple thousand dollars away from our goal. It is never too late to get involved! Visit our website and make a donation to support people experiencing homelessness, mental illness and addiction.

🎄 MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS! ☃️
Today has been a day with strong bittersweet feelings... Sweet, because today we are opening the doors of our new 24-Hour Respite Site in Liberty Village, which will allows us to support more people experiencing homelessness and in need of a safe space to stay.  Bitter, because the fact that this new site has to exist means that the number of people in our beautiful Toronto in need of our support is bigger than ever.  We truly wish we were not needed, but we are happy to have a new opportunity to do our part in sharing love, showing compassion, and offering hope to some of the most vulnerable and marginalized members of our community.  So open those new doors! Let's keep touching hearts and transforming lives!
.
A very special and big THANK YOU to ALL the community of Liberty Village! Residents, businesses, and associations, for the incredible support they have shown us.  They have truly made us feel welcomed and have expressed a strong desire to help our guests.  We feel grateful and overwhelmed by their generosity!  We will do everything we can to be the neighbours their kind spirits deserve.
