The latest COVID-19 updates and procedures

Under Ontario regulations, St. Leonard's Community Services programs and services in Addiction and Mental Health, Employment, Housing, and Justice continue with the necessary alterations.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Agency implemented several safety measures for clients, community members, and staff, such as screening, frequently sanitizing physical spaces, plexiglass barriers, the mandatory wearing of face masks, and providing physical distancing around the Agency. St. Leonard's Community Services is making every effort available to mitigate the risk of exposure for clients and staff.

Please call 519-759-8830 or visit the program-specific web page by clicking the tabs above for specific program or service information.

Needle Exchange continues to be offered at 133 Elgin Street only, using the window accessible from the west parking lot.

As always, our 24/7 crisis line is available: (519) 759-7188 or 1-866-811-7188. Clients are encouraged to utilize this service if they experience a mental health crisis during this difficult time.

Currently, we are once again offering in-person appointments for some of our non-residential services, including Addictions and Mental Health and Employment.  Please call us for more information.  We also continue to provide virtual or phone-based options.  Residential services continue to operate and efforts have been made to mitigate the risk of exposure for staff and clients such as enhanced client screening, increased efforts to sanitize physical space, limiting group interactions and increasing diversion efforts upon intake.

As the Province continues its phased re-opening approach, we continue to work alongside our funders and community partners to develop plans to increase the availability of face-to-face supports, so please check back routinely for updates or follow our social media channels. 

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation at this time.
