Everyone Deserves a HOME, EMPLOYMENT and a FUTURE

As a Non-Profit Registered Charity:

  • We take a proactive approach to changing social needs, we identify unmet needs and meet them by providing quality services through sustainable, creative solutions.
  • We reinvest in our communities; $.80 of every fundraising dollar goes back into the community to support our various programs/services.

What we stand for is reflected in everything we do, our logo is a representation of Maslow’s 5 stages of needs (Shelter, Food, Safety, Love and Belonging, Esteem and Personal growth), which are required to motivate us to achieve personal growth.

CONTACT’s Goal is to connect people to the resources needed to motivate and form a solid foundation to achieve success and personal growth.
