CAR (Community to Alternatives Program) to close effective March 31, 2021. Announcement made by the province. See details online, or a copy of the article on our services link, CAR tab.
A message from our Executive Director:
Waterston Ministries, which includes Waterston Centre, Waterston House, Kate's Place and Gemma House, continues to provide services to men, women and young girls during the pandemic. Like many other community services, it has been necessary for us to scale down and/or monitor more closely the services we provide. We are concerned about the current wave of Covid19 and are monitoring this closely.
The fourteen (14) bed emergency shelter portion of Waterston Centre is restricted due to an inability to provide safe distancing practices. We currently have seven (8) of the twelve (14) beds set aside in the dorm that can be accessed through direct referral from the Ministry of Social Services, Mobile Crisis or other government agencies. The remainder of beds are out of service.
All other remaining residential services at Waterston Ministries remain fully open, with some restrictions or tighter protocols on new intakes
Thank you for your understanding and please pray for our communities. We extend our thoughts of appreciation to all front-line workers in our community and throughout this great country.
Major Wayne McDonough
