Friendship Makes A Difference

Circle of Friends supports individuals and families transitioning from homelessness and shelter-living back into the Kitchener-Waterloo community.

Circles are small groups of 2-3 volunteers and 1 individual experiencing homelessness that meet each week for a couple of hours. These Circles create a network of support for folks in transition, with activities tailored to meet individual needs: one week a Circle may work on a budget, and the next they may go for coffee and visit.

Ways to Support Circle of Friends:

MCC Ontario's Circle of Friends programme is a partnership with the YW Kitchener-Waterloo and The Region of Waterloo's Housing Stability System.
