Trillium Gift of Life Network

Trillium Gift of Life Network

Evans Team Ottawa are strong supporters of the Trillium Gift of Life Network and organ donation. The Trillium Gift of Life Network is Ontario’s central organ and tissue donation agency whose main goal is to increase the number of registered organ donors in Ontario. Why? Because just one donor can save the lives of up to eight people and enhance the lives of up to 75 more.

What many people do not know is that even if you have a signed organ donation card you MUST register as well. So please give the gift of life and register to be an organ donor at www.beadonor.ca . It only takes a minute to register and that minute could change the lives of many people and their families.

Women for Mental Health at The Royal

Now over 300 contributors strong and $1.2m raised to date, Women for Mental Health at The Royal continues to bring like-minded women together to shift attitudes and change the way people think about mental health. This amazing group of women work to raise money to fund the transformation of patient care and innovative research at The Royal. Evans Team encourages you to join with us in helping bring about change.

About a year and a half ago I received an invitation to join this dynamic group. I have belonged to many philanthropic groups over the years, and been invited to many more, but have never been as impressed as with this group. Why? Top of the list is financial accountability. I love too that they appreciate all that we do. Communication between The Royal and Women for Mental Health Ambassadors and  members is exceptional. Their member events, from teas with Sharon Johnson, the wife of the Governor General,  to luncheons with moving special guest speakers who have benefited directly from the work at the Royal to ongoing special events- comedy nights, DIWD fund-raisers, concerts and many more.

But what I  love most is that it is such a NICE group of interesting women and so many with stories to tell about the role that The Royal has played in their family’s lives. I got to see first-hand the importance of what I am doing.

Harvest House Ottawa

Located in a rural setting, Harvest House is in the greenbelt of Ottawa South, at 3435 Ramsayville Road. The success of the residents of Harvest House is in part due to our rural location and distance from their former lifestyles in the city.

Harvest House adheres to an abstinence philosophy, including no smoking.

Thousands of men have come through the doors of Harvest House hoping for a new start. When people care enough to help, you are given the strength to overcome any obstacle. Harvest House is a place where people care.

Harvest House serves young men between the ages of 16 and 30, many of whom have been unsuccessful with other treatment programs. Harvest House does not turn away those who have histories of relapse, criminal activity or imprisonment.

The Mission of Harvest House Ministries is to rehabilitate young men who are chemically dependent, to instill in them self-discipline, and to reintegrate them into society by an inner change brought about by faith in Jesus Christ.

Matthew House Ottawa/Furniture Bank Ottawa

Matthew House Ottawa is a volunteer-driven charitable organization that helps newly-arrived refugee claimants and others in need establish safe, healthy, and dignified homes and community within the National Capital Region.  Our primary objective is to facilitate the independence of refugee claimants and marginalized people to allow them to thrive within Canadian society and have the basic life and employment skills necessary to live independently. Our role continues as they face the challenge of adapting to their new community through social activities, visitation and support.

The Furniture Bank of Ottawa was originally established to support refugees with donated household furnishings; however, the needs of a broader community emerged and the Bank was soon providing good quality donated furniture and household items to clients referred by social agencies and support groups throughout the city. The Furniture Bank currently helps more than 50 families furnish their own homes each month.
