Welcome to Our Website!
We are so glad you found us. First off thank you to all the Indigenous community members across St. Thomas Elgin, who helped us and participated last year during the beginning stages of this work.
WE ARE CONTINUING THE JOURNEY
So many people were disappointed that the original Journey Together St. Thomas-Elgin grant application was not successful. Despite this news, the St. Thomas-Elgin community members, organizations, and leaders remained deeply committed to continuing to work toward truth and reconciliation in St. Thomas Elgin.
TOGETHER IS BETTER ~ SHARING OUR STORIES
As a community, we continued the work and now we are very excited to share with everyone the beginning of a Family Friendship Centre in downtown St. Thomas. What will it look like? We don’t know as we need our Indigenous community members to share their hopes for this new exciting idea.
