The 519 is responding to the essential needs of LGBTQ2S communities and our neighbourhood during the COVID-19 crisis. While our building and Café remain closed, we are here every day serving takeaway meals, checking in on our communities, providing information and referrals, and delivering critical services for LGBTQ2S communities including youth, seniors, and newcomers. But our much-needed community-basedresponse does not have secure funding and we need your help.
