Repairing the social fabric of our community, one person at a time.
What We Do
Serving the downtown core (or Uptown as locals call it) of Saint John NB, Pennies & Sparrows seeks to care for those in unstable circumstances and on the margins of society. In partnership with other community organizations and churches in Saint John, we provide English language groups, support groups, drop-ins, children’s activities and relationship-focused programs; bringing people together and pointing them to the source of all hope.
