After eight years of serving our rural and northern neighbours, A Port in the Storm will permanently close its doors on July 31, 2020.

The comfort, safety, and security of A Port in the Storm guests remains our priority, and we will continue housing guests between now and July 31.

Thank you to the many generous donors, stakeholders, volunteers, and staff who made it possible to help people receiving medical care and their families over the past eight years. You have had a profound impact on many lives.

On behalf of my mother and sister I want to thank you for your kind hospitality during our stay. Warmth, caring, sincerity and comfort – we shouldn't just talk about these values – we should make a pie with them to share. My mother's outcome will not be what we had hoped but, she is still grateful for the smiling faces, where people remembered our names and asked sincerely about our days.

Cecile is a role model for the ages – all the ages. Every centre should have a service such as yours. This province is blessed to have you.
