Cornerstone and The Well, two of the Community Ministries of the Diocese of Ottawa, face funding cuts at the end of March totaling over $350,000. Cornerstone Housing for Women expects to lose $212,000 and The Well, a day program for women, about $140,000.

The funding cuts to both the Well and Cornerstone are the result of the realignment of federal monies within the Housing First framework," said the Ven. Dr. Peter John Hobbs, Director of Mission for the diocese. "Though this is disappointing and will impact the quality of our services in the short term, we are committed to continuing our programs and services," he said. "The City of Ottawa remains an important partner in this work along with all the people and parishes of our diocese." In a statement, Cornerstone said current services are being pared back to bare bones to fund new programs since there is "no new funding available to support the transition to the new way of doing business." The funding cuts also affect the Odawa Native Friendship Centre and Centre 507. - July 13, 2015

GIFT CampaignGIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
