In the fall of 2016 we launched a program to encourage senior-aged volunteers to help at Haven Toronto. Through this program we reached a number of seniors and we were lucky to find Don Taylor, who is now a regular volunteer at Haven Toronto. Don volunteers in the kitchen every Thursday. Don really understands the issues that our clients face because, at one point, he was homeless when he was in his teens. He knows what it’s like to have nothing.
“I love it here and the guys are great,” says Don. We thank the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat for their grant which has enabled Haven Toronto to reach out to seniors through its “Seniors Helping Seniors” program.
