Working wonders in our livelihoods…
“The services provided by ShareLife agencies are lifesaving and life-restoring to those who regularly rely on them. Families are working through crises and are healing. People with developmental challenges are supported as they experience a sense of self-worth and fulfillment in their daily activities. Seniors are living independently, with access to the care and services they need. Refugees and new Canadians are guided toward a stable, productive livelihood in their newfound home. Sometimes the results are obvious and sometimes they’re invisible but, always, they make a tangible difference.”
Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto
Next Sharelife Sunday – May 4, 2014
Please give generously. You can work wonders!
