On February 9th, The Teresa Group lost an incredible friend when Marjorie Monahan passed away.

Marjorie was a volunteer from the organizations earliest days, helping to shape TTG into a second family for so many. She gave so much of her time, kindness and care to families living with HIV.

On behalf of everyone at The Teresa Group, we send our condolences and love to Marjorie’s family and friends.

The Teresa Group Celebrates Black History Month

The Teresa Group is proud to join the many organizations and individuals celebrating Black History Month this February. TTG is proud to work with and support the BIPOC community every day, and we strive to continue the spirit and critical work of Black History Month throughout the year.  

This month, we hope to use our platform to be informative and uplifting as we look at the incredible Black Canadians who have been a part of Canada’s history and celebrate the everyday experiences of Black Canadians. 

Do you know of a great event this month or a Black figure you would like to see highlighted? Reach out to our team (info@ttgtoronto.ca) and we will do our best to share it! 

Thank you for being a part of our community, we look forward to celebrating together.
