Your Compassion Can Change a Life


Connor entered The Mission’s Stabilization unit in June of this year, after struggling with addiction for 34 years. Stabilization is where clients receive personal counselling, meet as groups, and get their lives in order before entering long-term addiction treatment.

While in Stabilization, Connor discovered that God was on his side and that he was ready to make big changes in his life. He told us about his family, who he values very much, and how lucky he felt to be reconnecting with them as part of his new, healthy lifestyle. In Stabilization, Connor was known as someone who always had a compassionate ear to lend.

Thanks to the faithful support of donors like you, we’re happy to report that Connor has successfully completed Stabilization and is doing well in The Mission’s 5-month residential addiction treatment program.

Your Gifts Provide the Tools for Transformation


Albert had a career he loved—working with children and adults with disabilities—when his life spiralled out of control. Due to his struggle with addiction, he lost his job, his home and even most of his family connections. For many years, he drifted around Ontario and briefly stayed at The Mission over a decade ago. When Albert finally decided to make some serious life changes, he knew that The Mission would offer him the tools and support he needed

When he began staying with us, Albert only had 10 goals in mind. But thanks to your generosity, he has gone on to achieve so much more! Beyond regaining his health and achieving six months of sobriety, he has worked to get his identification papers back in order, found employment, and applied for college to take courses to get his career back on track. And, at the top of his list, he has reconnected with family members, including his daughter and brother, both of whom he had not spoken to for over 15 years!

This transformation would not be possible without the compassionate support of people like you!
