Celebrating 30 Years

We’re celebrating 30 years! I cannot believe we’re part of this incredible piece of history.  

In 1983, a woman by the name of Joy Reid decided to open up a home for the women in Regent Park.; a place that provided a day-time space for women looking for support while coping with isolation, mental health issues and other difficulties.  Their mission was simple…to help.

“We realize that we can’t change people. People change themselves.  But we believe that we can walk beside them and
help clear the way.”
- Joy Reid (1937-2010)

416 has gone through many changes over the years, from a name change “Friends of the Shopping Bag Ladies” to as we know it “416 Community Support For Women” and a complete kitchen, basement and front entrance renovation.  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 of you.  We continue to expand our programming, our food services and our medical services to further assist the women that walk through the doors at 416 each day.

As part of this 30 years celebration we welcome you to join us at our open house anniversary event on Sunday, April 21st at 2:30pm-5:30pm, 416 Dundas Street East.
