For over 20 years the Knights Table has served the needs of people dealing with issues of poverty and homelessness in the Peel Region. Driven by client needs, the Knights Table is supported by a staff of 5 along with over 1,500 volunteers who are committed to assisting people who come through our doors.
The staff and volunteers assist the clients regardless of colour, culture, religion, economic status, gender, sexual orientation or social condition.
