Sister Christine Leyser

In 1983, Sister Christine Leyser and her group of volunteers opened the doors to the Guelph Welcome In Drop In Centre for the very first time.

Since then, our volunteers have continued her good work; providing services to hundreds of people daily thanks to people like you.
