CHATTER: Clinic not spared by Ford’s reversal (Summer 2019)

July 16th, 2019 · No Comments

Despite Premier Doug Ford’s announcement that some of his proposed funding cuts are being reversed, cuts to Kensington Market’s St. Stephen’s Community House remain intact.

The overdose prevention site in Kensington is still seeking approval for provincial funding because donations alone are not sustainable for the long-term operation of St. Stephen’s. There are now enough donations for the site to keep running until December 31 according to St. Stephen’s Executive Director, Bill Sinclair. 

St. Stephen’s has added two hours of much-needed service recently due to generous donations. To support St. Stephen’s, donations are still welcome at www.sschto.ca.
