To enhance the quality of life for those in need by providing food, clothing and other resources.
The Haven is a community centre for people experiencing significant financial hardship. We offer programs and services to help people bridge to self-sufficiency.
Helping our clients bridge to a better future is the focus for all that we do. That was the promise we made to the Etobicoke and Greater Toronto Area communities when we opened our facility in 2009. Since then, the Haven has been an integral part of helping people impacted by poverty and unstable employment and home security, to bridge to self-sufficiency.
The Haven invests in our clients’ futures.
Investing in and supporting people and families is fundamental to the overall health and success of our communities, now and in the future.
The Haven offers a range of support and services to help people bridge to self-sufficiency, at no cost.
Our clients come from across Etobicoke and the Greater Toronto Area. They are mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, co-workers and neighbours. Many are experiencing significant financial hardship. By making our programs and services accessible to those in need, we help our clients bridge to a better future and contribute to their communities.
Your support changes lives.
We’ve helped hundreds of individuals and families build a better tomorrow through the support of our community, volunteers, donors and program funders. The need is greater than ever, and with your ongoing generosity we can continue to serve those experiencing financial hardship to become self-sufficient and contribute to their communities.
Here’s why your support helps
