Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to our communities, near and far,
as so many people are suffering the effects of COVID-19. 
This pandemic has significantly impacted the world we know.  We particularly pray for:
 those who have lost loved ones,
those who are suffering personal illness,
those who are shut in and alone,
the many essential workers and
wisdom for all medical professionals

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. 

The fifteen (15) bed emergency shelter portion of Waterston Centre is restricted due to an inability to maintain safe distancing practices at full capacity.  We currently have only eight (8) of the fifteen (15) shelter beds open.  They can be accessed through direct referral from the Ministry of Social Services, Mobile Crisis or other government agencies.  The remainder of shelter beds are out of service.  However, we do use seven (7) specified private rooms to help address the shortage of emergency shelter beds.

All other remaining residential services at Waterston Ministries remain fully open, with various COVID19 protocols in place.


Thank you for your understanding and please pray for our communities.  We continue to extend our thoughts of appreciation to all front-line workers in our community and throughout this great country.
