The Scott Mission
Founded in 1941, Scott Mission is a Christian charity that supports poor people in downtown Toronto. Scott Mission states that someone may become homeless due to childhood trauma, lack of education, substance abuse issues, physical or mental conditions, or a criminal record. In addition to helping homeless people, Scott Mission also supports families, runs a summer camp for children, and raises public awareness of homelessness in Canada. The charity works to ensure that people’s basic requirements for food, shelter, and hygiene are being fulfilled while also taking care of their spiritual and social needs.
The grant will assist us in our commitment to stay open and care for our clients during the pandemic as we modify and increase core services with increased costs to safely deliver these programs (PPE, portable toilets and sinks, extra mattresses and deep cleaning service) as well as hiring an on-site nurse.
