In 1990, North York Community House (‘NYCH’) came into existence as a result of a sizable donation from an anonymous benefactor. Over the course of 21 years, this single act of generosity grew into an organization dedicated to assisting newcomers to Toronto in settling and integrating into their community, and to building strong neighbourhoods. When NYCH’s doors first opened, it operated out of a tiny Bathurst Street storefront with a staff of two. As the community changed, NYCH kept pace. In the intervening years, NYCH has grown, moving into several locations and expanding its services. Today, a staff of over 100 conducts services in 50 locations to over 25,000 individuals annually. A few things at NYCH have remained unchanged, things like our commitment to working with individuals in an effort to strengthen communities. Imagine, all this from a single, anonymous donation.
For over 21 years now, NYCH has been supporting families and new Canadians. We are a living part of the community, and we use our experience and strong relationships with local residents to ensure our services meet their changing needs. We also look for exciting new ways to work with community members to achieve their goals.
A strong community where all belong and thrive.
To support our diverse community to achieve its goals, and to enhance the strength and resilience of our neighbourhoods.
