It's a social services agency, one of the older ones in Toronto and not
affiliated with any religious group (the name suggests this).  The Dundas
& Ossington branch (north-west corner) has a community learning program
which is FLOSS-friendly.  Presently there's a PHP group and a Linux group
with meetings Thursday evenings and some other evenings depending on what
we get organized. We've a Yahoo Group at:

This is the program's web site: http://www.bangthedrum.net

Our co-ordinator swung the Netfinity donation and now we have a pretty
awesome machine at our disposal ready to be Debianized.  We plan to use it
as a workspace for the various projects we have in mind so we'll start
with a SSH shell server and soon add PHP/MySQL. We're tossing around ideas
around booting thin client support for machines in the computer lab as

Eventually it would be good if it supported a content management
repository for users and staff, and a facility for this has been
commissioned and is gradually becoming ready.  Personally, I'm tinkering
with Python & web services ideas so I'd like server support for that. 
There's so much capacity that we're open to ideas, of course.
