We are excited that Yonge Street Mission is planning on moving its Evergreen Centre into our neighbourhood next year. Just a 10 minute walk away at from us at 365/367 Spadina, the centre will serve street-involved youth and other vulnerable populations.
Many community groups, including Knox, are thrilled to welcome YSM to our neighbourhood. However, there is strong resistance by one influential group that is vocally opposing YSM’s new location on Spadina.
Joe Cressy, the councillor for our Ward, has organized two community meetings to provide opportunities for consultation on YSM’s move. He has said that it is “truly an honour to have their organization integrate their much-needed services into our community.”
We feel the same way. Could we show the unity of the body of Christ by attending these meetings and supporting our brothers and sisters at YSM? The meetings will take place on:
Tuesday January 12, 2016, 6pm – 8pm, University Settlement (23 Grange Rd.)
Thursday January 21, 2016, 6 – 8pm, Steelworkers Hall (25 Cecil St.)
