Yonge Street Mission
Founded in 1896, Yonge Street Mission aims to end chronic poverty in Toronto in one generation. Services include a food bank and meal programs, employment and computer training, school readiness programs, health care, counselling and personal development, daycare, and a post-secondary scholarship fund. Yonge Street Mission aims to help people get out of poverty and gain independence.
This grant will enable us to purchase fresh, nutritious foods for the food bank and emergency food boxes for all those in need, as well as facilitate the revised mental health supports required to meet the growing need for connection and intervention for families at risk, street-involved youth and adults experiencing poverty.
