Tavistock Assistance Program

TAP is a Christian, charitable, community organization providing support to local residents during temporary and emergency situations. We recognize that an unexpected setback can be difficult to navigate alone. We’re here to provide a customized support plan, to help you return to your normal routine as quickly as possible.

TAP is built on the foundation of neighbours helping neighbours. We’re a network of helpful contacts, appropriate supports and caring guidance, within the areas of Shakespeare, Tavistock, and Hickson.

Together, we’re building a strong, healthy community.

Give Support

TAP provides a customized assistance plan to help individuals get through a setback. We’re a local solution to offer a hand up. As needs vary, so do TAP’s resources.

A few ways to help are:

– By monetary donation. These donations may be used to purchase gas cards, fresh produce, clothing items, baby care, medical expenses, etc.

– Care bags of food and toiletries are available for purchase at Sam’s Valu-mart. Simply add a bag to your grocery bill, and Sam and his staff will let us know when there are donated items available for pick up.

– Host an event. If you’re hosting an event of any kind and wish to offer support to TAP, give us a call. We are blessed with several friendly and energetic volunteers, ready to help out in almost any capacity.
