Winter Survival Program
This winter, The Compass is reaching out to our community asking for support to help Mississauga's homeless population for the upcoming winter season.
Due to rising housing costs, there has been an increase in the number of homeless Compass clients. For many families, the winter represents a life or death battle, and they are dreading the months ahead.
With harsh weather on the horizon, please join us in helping those in need.

ARREST THESE MERRY GENTLEMEN: A Christ Church Children's Christmas Musical
