Mission Centre Expectations

Clients are expected to conduct themselves in a positive, respectful manner at ALL times and they will be treated the same. Inappropriate language including swearing, either verbal or gestural, is not accepted.

Smoking is not permitted in our building and drugs and alcohol are not permitted anywhere on our property. The backyard is for the enjoyment of our adjacent apartment building residents only. We have a very narrow driveway so bikes, scooters and wagons are to be parked at the end of the building near the bike racks. We would like you to join us for morning snacks but please only take 2 items so there is enough for all.

Volunteer with us! Read about all the volunteer positions by clicking the "Mission Centre Volunteers" link on the right side of the page.
