Pancake Breakfast for Homelessness

Tuesday Feb 25, 2020 7:00 am - 10:30 am

It’s our traditional Pancake Breakfast at the Hungry Heart on Tuesday, February 25! We’re serving up the best pancakes made from scratch, in-house cured bacon, yogurt, fruit, juice/coffee/tea. And yes, gluten-free available.

This event and the funds raised profile the issue of homelessness. Did you know that Stella’s Circle operates 79 units of housing throughout the city and works with 35 landlords providing permanent housing to people who face many barriers from fully participating in their community, such as mental illness, addictions, criminal justice involvement?  For the last fiscal year, we placed and supported 71 new participants in affordable housing. We also operate the only young women’s shelter in the province, Naomi Centre, and work with the women at the shelter to help them find safe and more permanent housing.
