MAY 27, 2022
This year marks the 30th anniversary for Sources Foundation! The birth of this foundation originated from an idea; let’s do some forward thinking on what social services will be needed for our children of the next generation and beyond. The rest is, as they say, history.

The Foundation enabled Sources Community Resources Society to touch the lives of more than 40,000 individuals every year. In 2021, we were able to provide counselling services to 2,600 people, help 420 people access assisted housing, and ensured 3,300 people received nutritious meals.

Proceeds raised have directly provided support for children, youths, families, persons with disabilities, seniors, and marginalized populations of the LGBTQ2S+ community. Our programs address issues of isolation, addiction, mental illness, poverty, disability, and conflict.

Sources Foundation is run by community and supported by community. With operating costs of less than 2%, we are able focus majority of the funds on overcoming adversities faced by individuals.

Today, the Foundation continues to be supported by individuals like you, doing the much-needed work to deliver programs to all members of our local communities seeking assistance now and in the future. 

Although we laid the groundwork 30 years ago, there is so much more to be done to preserve the sustainability of this social services network. Join us in our cause and let’s continue the lifeline of this foundation for another 30 years!

Minister Marco Mendicino Announces $5 Billion Funding for Dental Care Plan

Sources was pleased to host Honourable Marco Mendicino, Minister of Public Safety, as he announced a $5 billion federal investment to make dental care more accessible to Canadians. This plan will help more Canadians see a dentist over the next 5 years and takes into effect as early as the end of this year.

Currently, Sources runs a Volunteer Dental Clinic, a program that brings together local dentists and support staff to donate their time and expertise to provide pain relief associated with a lack of consistent dental care due to cost factors. Program details here.
