The Corner Drop-In: St. Stephen's Community House

The Corner Drop-In: St. Stephen's Community House

The Corner Drop-in meets an urgent, immediate need in our community by providing a safe, secure, welcoming place where homeless and marginally-housed people get food and daytime shelter. In Toronto, more and more homeless people are out on the streets and need help to get into shelter and secure permanent housing.

We serve over 200 participants through the Corner Drop-in each day. While some people come for the daytime shelter, nutritious hot food or just to meet and chat, others take advantage of primary health care services from on-site nurses, doctors and psychiatrists. We also provide information and help finding affordable housing, mental health support, voluntary financial trusteeship, addiction counselling, workshops and activities.

Thanks to the countless volunteers and landlords who participate in the program, our Corner Drop-in participants are able to make a fresh start.
