2019 - 2020Annual Report
“Stronger Together”. These words have never been more reflective of our values. This year we faced unprecedented challenges and have come together to continue building thriving neighbourhoods welcoming to all.
We are so amazed at the commitment of our staff and are grateful to our volunteers, Board members, peer leaders, donors and friends who have risen to the challenge during the pandemic to provide incredible care with heart, resilience, and creativity.
The Neighbourhood Group serves people at every stage of their lives, promotes independence and dignity, and engages the skills and talents of our neighbours to build a vibrant community.
In 2019-2020, The Neighbourhood Group and St. Stephen’s Community House helped 61,451 people with 1,017,881 visits across priority north, east and west Toronto neighbourhoods.
Thanks to our dedicated staff, volunteers and generous donors that helped keep our essential services going during COVID-19. While many of our services went virtual, some of our critical ones remained open, like our Overdose Prevention Site, Teesdale Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, Corner Drop-in and our supportive housing services.
Women’s & Family Services
1048 women successfully managed pregnancy and motherhood, violence, and other critical issues in our dedicated programs for women and families
Volunteers & Donors
The heart and soul of our work
Over 2,000 members of the community, including service users, students, parents and grandparents, volunteered their time to support their neighbors.
