As 2013 Ends……We Welcome 2014!

416 Community Support for Women has gone through many changes over the years and will continue to be a safe and supportive environment for women to find a sense of community and hope. We have learned that the bonds and connections developed between our members, our staff and our volunteers has created a unique opportunity for all the women of 416 to reach their full potential for physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Programs and Activities

Our accomplishments over this past year are truly a result of the hard work of our dedicated employees, board volunteers and service volunteers. Their on-going efforts allow 416 to offer numerous support groups and recreational activities to our members. Our trusted fundraising efforts such as our yearly Silent Auction, our Tree Sales Event and our ongoing grants and donations provide the following list of just some of the many workshops and events available to women here:

Medical Clinics; Cooking to the Oldies; Gardening; Auricular Acupuncture; Chinese Medicine; Clinic; Podiatry Clinic; Art & Creative Writing; Addictions & Recovery; Anger Management;

Literacy; Yoga; Emotional Growth; Crafts & Beading; Karaoke; Meditation & Mindfulness;

Spa Day; Games Nights; Dances; Knitting & Sewing; Day Trip to Bronte Park; Thanksgiving; Dinner; Holiday Dinner; Pride Week Dinner

With generous donations from variousFoundations, we have been able to further strengthen our Volunteer Program this year. With a staff position focused on volunteers, we have been able to create an environment where staff and volunteers can work together to meet the needs of the 416 community.

House Improvements

This year our major house improvements have been the renovation of our basement and the installation of doors in the Drop In area. Both of these renewals have allowed for the improved health and safety aspects of our building and our programs. The transformation of our Food Bank, the washrooms and laundry facilities and our newly built storage space and closets are now all areas of organization and efficiency. Our new and improved basement and the reformation of our Drop In program area are now spaces where our members feel a new sense of welcoming and pride. These amazing upgrades are thanks to the wonderful donors and friends of 416. We could not do the work we do, without the support of so many. We continue to expand our programming, our food services and our medical services to further assist the women that walk through the doors of 416 each day.

Once again, we would like to sincerely thank our program participants, staff, volunteers, board members, donors and supporters for their dedication and hard work. 416 Community Support for Women has been honoured to work with so many groups and individuals in this amazing journey of 30 years of providing a stable place of hope and encouragement to a most deserving group of women. We look forward to the possibilities in 2014.
