One of our unique ministries in the Toronto, Ontario community of Don Mills is St. Clare Inn, a transitional housing project that offers accommodation to homeless women between the ages of 30-60 who are struggling with a diagnosed mental health issue. This year, we celebrate its 10 year of service and ministry. If you would like to join our friars in celebration, please visit the St. Clare Inn website to buy your tickets.
St. Clare Inn is not a shelter. It is a transitional home where women can live with dignity while rebuilding their lives. Within this safe, drug and alcohol free environment – respect, peace, safety, and dignity are key values. Here, women can begin to heal and start to build a better future. A spirit of hospitality and community are an integral part of life at St. Clare Inn which is guided by the following principles:
- respect for each individual;
- a simple lifestyle;
- the healing benefits of living in community; and
- an atmosphere of peace
