The services the John Howard Society can offer the community are possible because of the support of many parts of that community. Federal, Provincial, Regional and Municipal governments, special foundations and corporations have all played an important part in helping us to help you. We also count on donations from individuals. Small or large, every dollar really counts and makes a difference for someone we serve.
