Established 2016, we are an Orthodox community outreach in Scarborough. We
welcome any person from Scarborough regardless of their belief, social status or
ethnic background. Each person, we believe, is of infinite value and therefore worthy
of unconditional respect.

As a social service open to all in Scarborough, we act out of the belief that there is at
the heart of each person beauty and goodness, and that the human person cannot be
ever fully understood, defined, or labelled.

As Orthodox we believe that in every encounter between people, there is a great
mystery some call God. We seek to build community among people using the gifts
that each person brings.

Good Neighbours

We are a drop-in mission new to the Scarborough neighbourhood! Come visit us at 193 Markham Road, near Markham and Eglinton.

Our home base and affiliate is St. John The Compassionate Mission located near Broadview and Queen. St. John’s has been serving the marginalized and those in need for the past 30 years. Before Good Neighbours, we have operated a drop-in mission on Danforth Road.

As with our affiliate missions, we wish to create a beautiful and inclusive place where people who visit can experience belonging and peace. All are welcome!


What we offer

Drop in services which includes food and drink.

Services for your children and youth such as summer camps and retreats. These camps focus on building leadership skills, nutritional skills, and an appreciation for Canadian wildlife.

Need to talk? In cooperation with St. Macrina Counselling Services we provide trained and licensed counselling in the areas of marital conflict, addiction, and violence. Individuals and families welcome.

Community outreach is a big part of the spirit of Good Neighbours. Almost every day two of our members visit local apartment buildings and hang out on the streets to spread the word.
