Glen Abbey United Church welcomed Wesley Urban Ministries to their building on April 3, 2017. Wesley is one of the oldest independent non-profit organizations in the region serving Brantford, Halton and Hamilton. Their main office and Day Centre is in Hamilton. The staff and volunteers offer a wide variety of programs and life-changing support for individuals and families experiencing poverty. Their motto: “Support, every step of the way.” Wesley was awarded contracts by The Region of Halton and to enhance their service, Wesley Urban Ministries opened a satellite office based in Glen Abbey United Church with easy access to Oakville and other communities such as Burlington, Milton and Georgetown. Their mandate in Halton is working on “housing and homelessness” and team members will be going out into the communities to meet their clients.
Outreach and supporting people in need has always been one of the core values and activities of the Glen Abbey United Church congregation and we were very pleased that Wesley Urban Ministries selected our site for their satellite office so the wonderful team can go out into Halton communities and provide their much needed support. Recently a young student described Wesley as an “awesome non-profit organization…that sees the potential in people.” Visit their website for more information: http://www.wesley.ca
