Update Shelter/Hub

Following the  temporary  closure of the Shelter/Hub (funded by the Kenora District Services Board – KDSB and operated by the NeChee Friendship Centre) in mid August for renovations and a “reset”, Knox United Church continues to be committed to the long term lease agreement with KDSB and to the vision of this project

We understand that the decision by KDSB to temporarily close the Hub was a difficult one, and Knox members and community service professionals are working together to make alternative plans for those in need during this 45-day period.  Charlotte Caron is the liaison of one group that is looking towards medium and long term operations and the co-ordinated involvement of support services. A second group, with Meg Illman-White as the liaison, is working on emergency provision of services during the closure which includes increased street patrol, food, water, washroom access, laundry facilities, tents, blankets, socks, clothes, etc. 

We know long term solutions will require broad community collaboration and the resources of many sectors in the community.  We also remember that Jesus reached out to those His society shunned and as followers of Jesus, we are called to walk that same path.  Knox looks forward to the re-opening of the Hub at the end of September, and we ask you to hold those affected by mental health and addiction in your prayers as well as those who work with them on their long journey.

Knox is a Affirming Congregation

At Knox United Church, we celebrate diversity. In God’s world we are diverse in gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, culture, age, physical ability, religious perspective, and economic status. Jesus met people wherever they were in their journey. Relationship changes us. Knox is an evolving community of faith that seeks to intentionally welcome new perspectives and leadership.
