 • St. John The Compassionate Mission and Good Neighbours Scarborough – along with other TDIN members and City of Toronto social services – will continue to provide essential services to the city’s most vulnerable, while following the provincial health guidelines for COVID-19 management as it applies to drop-ins.

 • We are in urgent need of hand sanitizer, fruit and canned fish and yes of course Kleenex.

“Bad times! Troublesome times! This men are saying. Let our lives be good; and the times are good. We make our times; such as we are, such are the times.” — St. Augustine, Sermon 30


Joanna started to come to the Mission back in 1986 on Blake Street when Misty her daughter was just in grade school. Misty was part of our Saturday bible group, later she married and moved to Scarborough where she lives with her husband and children. Now her youngest daughter Asha has joined our team for the summer at Good neighbours.
