Welcome Gore Park Respite Centre - In May Fred Victor will be transitioning the respite centre at Lakeshore to Gore Park. It will take them a bit of time to get organized and acclimatized to their new surroundings.

On November 4th 2018 Project Comforted hosted local residents of Fort York, Liberty Village, City Place and area shelters. A special thanks to Tim Hortons at Dan Leckie Way and Fort York for supplying the donuts. The event allowed attendees to engage in open dialogue resulting in new ideas where we can assist residents in their transition to sustainable housing.
Alongside Fred Victor, Project Comfort hosted a holiday gathering at the Respite Centre on Bathurst St & Lake Shore Blvd W.
This was an opportunity to share with the less fortunate in our community and create a memorable experience for those in need a during the holiday season.
Project Comfort had the pleasure of speaking to first and second graders at Regal Public School. Many of the children shared how they like to help the homeless by giving them food or change.
They presented a mitten tree to help out those in need. On the tree were:
21 winter hats
25 sets of mittens/gloves
46 sets of socks
6 pairs of boys’ underwear
3 pair of girls’ underwear
1 set of earmuffs
On February 26th 2019 volunteers of Project Comfort participated in the "Coldest Night of the Year" walk.
Raising the second largest group donation amount for St Felix local residents showed their pride in their community.
Thanks to all who participated and donated to this event.
