Yonge Street Mission

Imagine a city where every person feels they belong; where everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive and accomplish their goals. At Yonge Street Mission (YSM), we understand poverty. For over 121 years, YSM has provided wraparound support and services that make it possible for individuals, families and communities to move forward. As a developmental agency specializing in poverty-related challenges, we work closely with individuals, families, children, youth, and entire communities living with chronic poverty. Our aim is to help them rise out of poverty. Yonge Street Mission exists so that all the poor and vulnerable in Toronto that we encounter will experience God’s love, peace, and justice at a level that represents the highest stewardship of the resources invested.
