Your urgent help is needed to provide critical frontline support

Helping communities thrive has been at the core of everything we do.

Your Y is stepping up to help our communities' most vulnerable during this crisis. It's a tough time, but for our vulnerable communities, it's much worse.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve at an alarming rate, nothing is more important to us than the physical, mental and emotional health and safety of our communities.

The Y is committed to serving our communities in the ways it's needed most right now.

We are working hard to provide our community with:

  • Emergency Child Care for our essential workers, giving their children a safe place to spend their time while their parents take care of our community.
  • We continue to provide shelter and support services for at-risk youth and those experiencing homelessness, including outreach in the community.
  • Newcomer services are still being offered online to those who need support navigating their new home, especially during this challenging time.
  • Our employment services are available online to support those who are looking for employment.
  • Engaging with our older adult community who are so vulnerable during this time. We offer support with phone calls, online connection and trying to best support their day-to-day needs with volunteers.

This is what the Y's COVID Response Fund makes possible.

Support the Y-GTA COVID Response Fund and help our neighbours access these critical services and more in their time of need.
