St. Stephen’s Community House at 260 Augusta Ave. is looking for volunteers. (BRIAN BURCHELL/GLEANER NEWS)

RE: Volunteers needed!

I would like to thank you for your article on St. Stephen’s yard and for drawing attention to the challenges those facing homelessness experience.

It is my belief that many in our community see the struggles and feel helpless because the problem is widespread and complicated and they don’t know how to help. 

The reality is, we can all lend a hand. St. Stephen’s Community House on Augusta has a corner drop-in where they provide hot meals, showers, laundry, etc. to our community’s vulnerable population. 

They also have programs and services for mental health, addiction, harm reduction and housing. 

They do incredible work, but sadly, they are underfunded and rely on volunteers across the organization. 

An easy way to get involved and help with the immediate need is to help prepare meals in the kitchen. 

For anyone interested in lending a hand, please contact the main line at 416-925-2103 x1255 or via email at and ask to be connected to Chef Mike.

—Thank you
Mary Lepage
