Precautionary Measures
In light of the ongoing developments with the threat of the Coronavirus and advisories from the Health Officials, the Labrador Friendship Centre is taking measures to help the vulnerable people who may live, work, and or visit and take part in our programs and services, as well as the general public.
We have decided to discontinue all non-essential programs and services at the Labrador Friendship Centre.
Effective March 16, 2020, the following programs have been discontinued until further notice:
• Aboriginal Head Start
• SHIELD Programs
• Seniors' Programming and Services
• Seniors' Van
• Meeting space rentals
• Multi-purpose room rentals
• Catering
The following services will not be available until further notice:
• Assisted Living Program will NOT be receiving visitors to the units.
• The Friendship Diner (Kitchen) will be closed to the public
• The Gary Broomfield Hostel will be closed to all visitors
Please note we will still be accepting people as tenants to the Gary Broomfield Hostel. The tenants are one of the reasons why we are putting these measures in place.
The Food Bank will remain OPEN. Arrangements with the clients for food bank pickups will be established. These arrangements will be made with the safety of the staff and clients in mind.

Service for Seniors

S.P.E.C.S is a volunteer committee that seniors have been able to avail of for a large number of years. This committee is not funded by the government so must rely on other organizations to help with monetary donations. The monetary donations are used to help seniors with the purchase of items such as, glasses, hearing aids, dentures, and various other items. Seniors of 60 years of age and over who need this service are provided up to $250.00 per item. This service removes a great burden to those who otherwise would have to do without.

Any and all donations are accepted and would be greatly appreciated. Donations can be sent to the address below.

An individual who wants to avail of this service can request it in writing and forward the letter to the committee at:

P.O. Box 814, Station B
Happy Valley-Goose Bay
NL, A0P 1E0
