We have been caring a long time.
We have been serving the Toronto area since 1974. It all began in 1970, when Circle of Care was launched as a demonstration project called Coordinated Services to Jewish Elderly, under auspices of the Toronto Jewish Welfare Fund (now the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto). We have gone through a few name changes over the years to reflect our expanded mandate. We now serve individuals of many faiths and cultures, and our clients include people of all ages.
We have grown to 525 staff members serving more than 7000 people a year.
Circle of Care began as a small agency in a house on Baycrest Avenue and is now a large multi-service organization. We are one of the very few agencies in Ontario that has contracts with Community Care Access Centres, and also provides community support services. This means the range of services that we can offer clients is vast and meets their many needs.
We receive funding from many sources, including:
- 4 Community Care Access Centres (Central; Toronto Central; Central East; Central West)
- The Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN)
- The City of Toronto
- United Way Toronto
- UJA Federation of Greater Toronto
- The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany
As part of Circle of Care’s emphasis on quality and service excellence, we have memberships in, and play a leadership role in a number of associations, including:
