Today marks 8 months since we first erected tents in Moss Park. We continue to operate without funding using funds from this Go Fund Me. We have reversed hundreds of overdoses, seen thousands of injection visits, established a 200 strong volunteer workforce, and maintained lifesaving connections. There is an emotional toll to this work and we are feeling it. We appreciate your ongoing support.

At almost 8 months in, we are still operating on funds from this Go Fund Me. We anxiously await the receipt of funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health & Long-term Care pending approval of our OPS application. In the meantime, we are very grateful for the support that is keeping us operating the Moss Park Overdose Prevention site. Hours are 4-7 Monday-Friday and 1-7 on weekends. Thank you!

It’s been a while since we sent an update but we are still operating the Moss Park Overdose Prevention site everyday! Last week we applied to the provincial Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care to Fund our site and today we met with the city and province to discuss next step and look at potential sites. Until we are funded (hopefully soon!) our operating costs come from this fundraiser so we continue to rely on and appreciate the generous donations that have kept us afloat for over 7 months now. Thanks so much to all of you, our supporters, for the vote of confidence in the importance of the work we are doing, saving lives and building connections everyday.
