Family Services

Family Services | The Dock

The people of Saskatoon suprise us again and again with their generosity of beds, household items, bikes, electronics, books, and too many other goods to list.

When someone drops off dry goods like this, we store it on our loading dock where it is used to help our clients in a variety of ways.

  • Setting up an apartment: Many of our clients come to us with only the clothes on their back. After finding employment and then a apartment, many are in need of basic household items.
  • Disaster and Emergency Relief: In case of a fire or damage to a house or apartment, the possesions on The Dock are used to help someone start over.
  • Transitioning out of the half-way house. While many of our corrections clients have been able to accumulate basic goods while staying with us, there is often some things that are over looked. In helping them transition smoothly back into society, goods are provided.

In all cases the goods are provided at no charge.

Other uses for goods given to the Centre include improving the quality of life for our clients and once the Dock is overflowing (which happens a couple times a year), we hold a giant community garage sale in our north parking lot where good are sold a very low price and the proceeds go to support programming and activities for our clients who live in the Centre.

Donations can be dropped off at the Family Services entrance from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and at the Men's Residence entrance after 4:30 p.m.
