This new space at 16 Bayfield St is the culmination of much planning, prayer and study.  It will be home to new and enhanced foundational programming to help break the cycle of poverty many are finding themselves in.

The Day Program Centre features a computer lab for job searches and resume writing, meeting space for seminars such as anger management and financial management, a teaching kitchen, laundromat, public washroom/showers, and case management.

Staff at the Bayside Mission have worked extremely hard and are excited about the possibilities for this space. 

Interviews with Salvation Army staff will be available following the ribbon cutting.
