In an effort to assist those less fortunate, Brother Jim played a tremendous role in developing what are now core social programs and services in the Neighborhood of Brophy Place, Mcgrath Crescent area. The issues associated with poverty are many, from basic food and clothing needs, to general health and well-being. Brother Jim’s impact was immediate and long-term. The establishment of the outreach house, clothing room, and food bank were the start of many programs and services which are now the foundation for the community centre that exists in Brophy Place today.
