$100,000 Ontario Government Grant Gives Supportive Housing Provider a Lift

Brampton, ON – On Thursday, the team at St. Leonard’s Place Peel gathered to celebrate the $100,000 Resilient Communities fund grant from the provincial government’s Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) that was used to employ an on-site Nurse Practitioner. The service will provide low barrier access to healthcare, including referrals and medical assessments for the vulnerable population we serve.

“Non-profit organizations across Ontario deliver programming that makes a difference,” said Neil Lumsden, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport. “That’s why funding that my ministry is providing through the OTF is so important. Our government wants to ensure that these programs and spaces remain the heart of communities across our province.”

St. Leonard’s Place Peel recognizes the unique challenges faced by vulnerable populations and aims to provide wrap-around services within our facility. On-site access to primary health care will ensure that clients are connected with a medical professional and receive the appropriate medical care they need. With 1 in 4 Ontarians expected to be without a family doctor by 2026, our organization aims to tackle the growing need for access to primary health care within our community.

“On-site access to primary health care will ensure that clients are connected with a medical professional and receive the appropriate care when they need it.  said Leslie Barnes, CEO of St. Leonard’s Place Peel. “This grant has helped the men we support connect with the community and aligns with our Mission, Vision and Values.  We take great pride in providing access to quality services, after all, “It’s How We Care.”
