Georgette Gregory, CSJ Toronto, Ontario

As a sister of St Joseph, Sr. Georgette Gregory became a registered nurse and nurse practitioner, then developed a healing ministry over thirty years. "My work with the homeless and under-housed in the last twenty years has called me" she has said, "to a deeper spirit of poverty than I ever imagined."
She advocated for dental clinics for people who cannot afford dental care (the economically poor as well as the homeless.) As well, she developed and ran a visiting program for people isolated in their homes while working at Mustard Seed.
The Fred Victor Mission, (which works for health, income and housing for impoverished and homeless people), has awarded Sr. Georgette its Women with Purpose-Mary Sheffield Award, for a lifetime of leadership in addressing poverty and homelessness in Toronto.
Among her many roles, Sr. Georgette has worked to fight human trafficking. As Director of In Good Company, a project of the Toronto Sisters of St. Joseph, she was lauded for her passionate commitment to justice for marginalized people.
