Sanctuary Ministries (known as Sanctuary to its supporters) is a Christian organization in Toronto that puts direct social justice efforts at the forefront of its ministry. It had been responding to the homeless crisis in Toronto well before the Pandemic hit, and is now one of the leaders in homeless activism. They offer take-out meals, shelter supplies, and a place to go when all doors are closed.
You will remember Rosedale United coordinated the donation of sleeping bags and tents to Sanctuary Toronto when there was a major shortage of shelter beds because of the shutdown of the Out of the Cold program. In addition, Rosedale reallocated half of our Wychwood Clothing Bank clothing inventories to Sanctuary Toronto as well as financial contributions.
