For over 80 years, Scott Mission has been Toronto’s compassionate neighbour, helping vulnerable people escape poverty on a journey of transformation.
Scott Mission is Toronto’s longest-serving support agency, grounded in Christian values, and providing an array of integral life services—including nutritious food, groceries, gently used clothing, family services, and mental health counselling, among others. We are committed to enabling all people to achieve life transformation by overcoming poverty.
For every day of the past 80 years—despite a world war, recessions, and the coronavirus pandemic—Scott Mission has met the in-the-moment needs of our community without interruption. But since the pandemic, more and more seniors are coming to Scott Mission for help. It’s a troubling trend.
“Our seniors face extra challenges beyond the obvious financial ones,” says Julian Picon, manager of the emergency shelter.
“They experience greater physical health and mental wellness challenges, sometimes together,” he continues.
What if Scott Mission didn’t exist?
It’s an important question. What would our seniors do without us? What about all our struggling neighbours?
100,000 hot meals wouldn’t be available for those in need. Same for over 30,000 orders of groceries. There would be no clothing bank either. No emergency men’s shelter. No family support services. No counselling. Nothing to help vulnerable seniors, like Kevin.
Scott Mission has been Toronto’s compassionate neighbour for over 80 years. We’re here and we’re not going anywhere.
We walk with our clients together on their journey of transformation. But we need partners, like you, to walk with us so that we can help more vulnerable seniors in need.
