For over 65 years Mission Services of London has served people in the community – both long-time residents and those new to the city – who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness, those who have a mental illness and/or addiction, and those living in poverty. Homelessness is inextricably intertwined with poverty – a complex issue requiring a comprehensive approach.
“We realize that no single organization can fully address poverty, however, each organization can play a positive role. To that end, I am very pleased to announce that effective April 1, 2017 Mission Services of London became an organization that pays, as a minimum, all of its employees a ‘living wage’, says Peter Rozeluk, Executive Director. Our organization has been added to the list of Living Wage Employers in London.
“For London Ontario, a ‘living wage’ is $15.53 per hour currently. As an organization we are working toward consistently applying our values – compassion, hope, integrity, diligence – in all of our relationships, including our employees. We are proud to take this step and be a small piece in the larger strategy of addressing the serious issue of poverty in our community,” says Rozeluk.
Mission Services of London opens doors of hope with compassion for those seeking emergency shelter and support, by offering safe shelter, food, clothing and rehabilitation.
