    Call us between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. weekdays for assistance

    Just a reminder that the Abrigo Centre is open, yes open and staff members are working virtually or by telephone to assist our clients. With the Fall 2021 now upon us, COVID-19 positive cases continue to remain high in our province.

    Our decision to continue to work virtually is designed to help keep our staff members, clients and volunteers healthy and safe at this time. Our office remains closed to walk-in clients and no in-person counselling sessions are being scheduled at the moment.

    However, if you need assistance, please call us at 416-534-3434 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and one of our highly trained counsellors will return your call. All our clients are receiving the help and assistance they need.

    As we continue to soldier on through this pandemic, please remain vigilant and safe and we will get through this difficult time together. If you still need to get your first or second COVID-19 vaccination please call us at 416-534-3434 and our incredible Vaccine Engagement Team will assist you to get your shot.
