Compassion has no age limit! ❤
Today we received the visit of Armaan, an incredible young man who has been a great supporter of our Center. Last year, Armaan used a large portion of his Christmas money to make care packages for our guests ... and this year he did it again! And he made even more this time! 😊  The care packages included gloves, a neck warmer, socks, a Tim Hortons gift card and some chocolates. He came to the Center this morning and handed them out to our guests, but not before receiving a round of applause from them when they were informed about Armaan's generosity. 👏👏👏 Armaan is a great example that there is no age limit to start giving back and showing kindness to the less fortunate members of our community. We hope that Armaan remains close to St. Felix Center, but above all, we hope that his heart remains eager to bring hope and warmth to people who deserve love and compassion. 🙌

Are you ready to make change in 2020?!
.
We are hosting a Toronto Queen Liberty walk with The Coldest Night of the Year on February 22nd and we can't wait to experience it with all of you!

Walking through the cold is our way and our supporters way of declaring our concern for the many people currently without homes. For those who face overwhelming circumstances. We are walking together to bring people closer to safety, health and home.

Join us on Saturday February 22, 2020 to make a difference in the lives of the many guests (and pets!) we support each and every day. Follow the link in our bio to make a team, join a team, volunteer or sponsor the cause.

HE KNEW HE WOULDN'T SURVIVE OUTSIDE, WEAK AND BARELY ABLE TO WALK... SOON THERE WAS NEW HOPE; HE WAS REFERRED TO ST. FELIX CENTRE – THIS IS DAVID’S TOUCHING STORY. 👇
.
David worked for many years as a project manager, being involved in the construction of many well-known hotel buildings in Ontario. A bit over a year ago, while working on a big project, David suffered a foot injury. He took some days off, but was asked to return to the project as soon as possible as the construction couldn’t slow down. Working on a contract, David knew he couldn’t lose the job; so, thinking the injury wasn’t that serious, he got on his feet and went back to work. Not long after, the injury started to show some complications. Pressured by the circumstances – as many people depending on every paycheck to stay afloat are – David kept on going. The pain became unbearable, and he was soon hospitalized and in need of surgery to save his leg. The recovery process was taking longer than planned, so he was unable to rejoin the construction; however, he thought he would be alright receiving some disability support. As he was waiting for the approval, he turned 65 and found himself trapped between the disability support and the retirement process. The system collapsed around him, preventing him from receiving any financial support. He was unable to work, with just some savings to eat, unable to pay his rent, and with the need of medication and special care.
.
For a short period of time he crashed on people’s couches, but soon he realized that those same people, who he had helped in the past, were not as close friends as he thought they were. It didn’t take long before he was alone, on the streets, homeless…
.
He knew he wouldn’t survive outside, weak and barely able to walk. Soon there was new hope; he was referred to St. Felix Centre 24-Hour Respite site in Liberty Village... 👇👇👇

St. Felix Centre has been described as a space "providing a safe haven for people - and their pets." As you can see in this photo, Rocky wouldn't disagree with that! Rocky and his human family were part our guests accessing our 24-Respite Program, to remain warm and safe through the cold winter.  On top of being a pet friendly space, our P.A.W.S. program (Pets: Accessing Wishes and Support) provides pet owners with the opportunity to apply for veterinarian care, neutering, different treatments, and prescription medications for their pets. We understand that a person's entire support system can be their pet - this is particularly true for a person experiencing homelessness.
.
You can help us in supporting amazing four-legged companions such as Rocky by making a donation towards our P.A.W.S. program, our support all our work by participating in our Lighting the Way campaign. Every dollar counts and there is no such thing as a small donation. Visit our website to know more about P.A.W.S., or follow the link in our bio to make a donation!
