Service Disruption: On Monday, April 19th the John Howard Society of Niagara is working on technology improvements to serve you more efficiently. Unfortunately, that means our telephone system will be down for the day and we cannot receive calls or messages. You can contact us through email if you need to reach out or if you have an emergency our agency cell phone will be available for messages. Please contact 289-407-6704.

Effective April 8, 2021: All John Howard Society of Niagara locations are closed to walk-in traffic. We will continue to provide virtual services by phone, email and video meetings during the current provincial “Stay at Home” orders.

Although the John Howard Society of Niagara and Job Gym physical locations have closed, our intention during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is to continue serving our communities. How we serve you may look different during this time. Ensuring the safety of our employees and clients is paramount. We are supporting local, provincial and national efforts to limit the spread and impact of COVID-19, including by following the advice of public health officials.

For the time being, we suggest that your first method of contact with us be via phone call or email.
