from our Housing program
Your contribution has the power to change their world—from helping a family put food on the table to providing a woman with the support she needs to leave an abusive household. Whether it be a one-time gift or a monthly donation, every contribution counts.
TNO – THE NEIGHBOURHOOD ORGANIZATION offers many volunteer opportunities, whether you have one hour or more of time to donate. If you are interested in working with children and youth, community economic development, or helping the residents, this is the right place for you. Even during the pandemic TNO was able to offer virtual volunteer opportunities that continue to support the community during this difficult time.
How will my donation help TNO?
Your gift will assist individuals with integrating into Canadian society and labour markets. It will help a newcomer adjust to Canadian culture and lifestyle, give a teenager self-confidence and leadership skills, and may even help a young woman and her children escape domestic violence.

The tax receipt and the thank-you letter are issued within 24-48 hours of your donation.
