Your ongoing support gives us the stability to keep newcomers connected. Especially now.
Help us to continue to bring joy to newcomers and their families through these uncertain times.
We are continuing to organise programs using our virtual meeting rooms. Virtual appointments by phone, email, and Zoom are available. If you need support, please call (705) 743-0882 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also come to our In-Person Brief Services Drop-in at our Peterborough office (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9.30-11.30am) for help with quick questions.
