oneROOF – M & O Service

oneROOF Youth Services

Our Mission & Outreach committee is hosting this service in support of “oneROOF Youth Services”.  This organization is committed to providing the safety, support, and overall well-being of youth age 12 to 25 experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in the Waterloo Region.  We are honoured to have Bonnie Kropf, the Fund Developer for oneROOF, joining us as our guest speaker.   

Our M&O Committee chose oneROOF Youth Services to highlight the amazing work they are doing for homeless and at risk youth in our community.  M&O is hoping to create an ongoing ministry between oneROOF and SJRUC. Our hope is that our congregation will support this new initiative for as oneROOF’s logo says, “One youth on the street is one too many.”

Our goal is to raise at least $1,200 for this organization, and at the same time collect both clothing, and hygiene items suggested by oneROOF and listed further down on this page .
