Anchored in faith, the staff of London Community Chaplaincy in Ontario walks with the communities of Southdale and Limberlost, building relationships and offering hope, presence, opportunities, and support to people living in poverty.

Countless volunteers help with programs that enrich the lives of the many children who are impacted by poverty. London Community Chaplaincy walks with the families in a non-judgmental, loving way.

What draws children to the programs? Perhaps it is the wonderful meals or the nutritious snacks. Maybe it is the music and art they can explore. It could be the nurturing relationships they develop with the staff and volunteers. Whatever the reason, staff and volunteers are glad they come! They hope they are planting seeds of hope so children can imagine a future bigger than what they may know living with the daily challenges poverty brings.

The London Community Chaplaincy may not be able to take away many of these challenges, but staff and volunteers can listen and share a bus ticket, a food card, or some food to make the day a little easier. Most importantly, the chaplaincy is a presence in the lives of many of the resident families, and through the chaplaincy, you, our supporters, are present as well.

We sing thanksgiving for London Community Chaplaincy programs that change lives!
