An important research project from The Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging McMaster University. Older men who are homeless have unique needs and face many barriers, yet public policy and funding for services meeting their unique needs are lagging far behind.

With the support of the New Horizons for Seniors Program, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC), Government of Canada, we were able to purchase a new billiard table and hockey table for our men to enjoy.
Drop by and have a friendly game with the guys.

The campaign is over and the big winner is The Good Neighbours' Club! Our friends at CIBC once again provided a van load of clothing donations and underwear in their "Go out and Grab some Gitch" promotion. Among the CIBC staff leading the charge were Todd Karges, Martine Valentine, Andrea O'Neill and Erin Ellis. All of us at the GNC thank you and wish you a Merry Christmas and happy New Year! #CIBC

We want to give a Good Neighbours' Club (GNC) shout-out to the great group of Moss Park Neighbourhood Officers, Toronto Police Service who helped out at the GNC's annual Christmas lunch yesterday. They handed out gift bags to over 150 of our clients. You were great!

The holidays can be a very depressing time of year for #elder men who are #homeless. Help GNC make a difference this holiday in their lives.

Dear friend,. Thank you for your ongoing support of The Good Neighbours' Club's services for older homeless and under housed men. The Club continues to provide hot meals, showers and laundry to its members as well as counselling, housing support and recreational activities.

Story
Tagline
The Good Neighbours’ Club is a centre for homeless and marginally housed men over 50 in downtown Toronto.
Introduction

The Good Neighbours’ Club was established in 1933 to respond to the needs of a large number of elderly, unemployed and homeless men, many of whom were veterans of the First World War. May Birchard, who founded the Club, was strongly motivated by strong principles, particularly the belief that “thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” She and the early supporters of the Good Neighbours’ Club believed that older men in need, and particularly veterans, ought to have access to the basics for a dignified life.

We continue to ensure that the values held and practiced by the Club’s staff and volunteers are based on the fundamental principles of integrity, fairness, service, excellence and respect for human dignity and potential.
