“The eternal quest of the individual human being is to shatter his loneliness." (Norman Cousins)

COVID-19 has been challenging for everyone, and in a multitude of ways. If you are feeling isolated and alone, Fontbonne Ministries’ In Good Company program is here to help.

In Good Company matches volunteers with individuals experiencing social isolation and loneliness in a friendly visiting relationship that encourages and supports community connection.

If you are in need of support, please contact Louisa Loucareas, In Good Company Program Coordinator, at lloucareas@fontbonneministries.ca.

PROGRAMMING DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

All of us at Fontbonne Ministries are very aware of the many needs our programs meet for a diverse range of participants every day.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, however, it has become necessary to evaluate how and when our programs are delivered to ensure the safety of those we serve, our volunteers and our staff.  After consultation with our leadership, colleague agencies providing similar services, and following the guidelines provided by Toronto Public Health and the Ontario Ministry of Health, we are announcing these program cancellations, effective immediately and in effect until further notice.

Village Mosaic – adapted for digital platforms, click here for more information.
Studio on the Hill – closed.
In Good Company – no in-person visiting; contact will be by telephone only.
Mustard Seed – take out lunch service available Friday, Saturday and Sunday 11:30am to 1pm.

Programs which are still operating on a modified basis may be cancelled or closed at any time should directives from public health or other government agencies mandate.

Our thanks to the staff and volunteers of Mustard Seed, In Good Company, Studio on the Hill, and Village Mosaic for their dedication and outreach to their communities in these challenging times, and for continuing to do the ordinary with extraordinary care.

We will update this information as and when the situation changes.  We thank you for your patience.

– The Fontbonne Ministries Leadership Team

"Man can live for about 40 days without food, about three days without water, about eight minutes without air ... but only for one second without hope." (Hal Lindsey)

A shout-out to Project Winter Survival for dropping off hope in the form of ten sleeping bags and backpacks
