We are so fortunate to have Johanne cooking meals with love at Spencer House. Johanne has over 20 years of professional cooking experience.

She “enjoys cooking for people who enjoy eating!” Johanne keeps our bellies full and happy with our favourite meals.


Jenny Gagnon & Trish Erskine, Custodians

Jenny & Trish work tirelessly to keep our Centre clean and organized. This past year they have put in extra time sanitizing the Centre every night so our members can enjoy a safe space to eat, meet, and play. They often leave special treats and seasonal gifts for our members (anonymously 😉) as a way of saying “you’re deserving, and you’re loved.”
