Fontbonne Ministries

Mission Statement

We are a welcoming community where you are not alone, and everyone belongs. As an inclusive social service organization, our programs foster personal well-being and creativity and respond to food and housing insecurity, social isolation and loneliness. Wherever you are in your life, the spirit of our founders – the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto – inspires us to join with you in nourishing mind, body and heart.



Building welcoming, supportive communities and pursuing social change.



  • Respect: We value each person as a distinct expression of God’s love and invite each other to discover and to celebrate our unique gifts.
  • Advocacy: We respond to society’s evolving needs and mobilize positive change through transformational leadership.
  • Community: We work together with neighbours and partners to build strong relationships that are mutually supportive and collaborative.
  • Compassion: We give our full attention to each person and show understanding, empathy and sensitivity to their needs.
  • Accountability: We use the resources entrusted to us with care, and make sustainable choices that will benefit future generations.
