About All Saints

 

All Saints Church-Community Centre (ASCCC) has been serving the community at Dundas and Sherbourne since its establishment in 1872. ASCCC has taken many forms across its history, with a current focus on providing supports for some of Toronto’s most economically disenfranchised people: people who struggle with homelessness, mental illness, addiction, and other challenges. All Saints has functioned as a community hub of social innovation for more than half a century, incubating programs that have become independent organizations. These organizations include Street Health, Council Fire, and Operation Springboard. An important community partner is All Saints Church Homes for Tomorrow Society (ASCHTS), which ASCCC established in 1987 as the province’s first subsidized housing project for people who were single and poor. ASCCC currently offers pioneering harm reduction programs as well as food, nursing, and case management for our neighbours experiencing extreme poverty, or what Statistics Canada calls “deep income poverty.” In April 2024, the ASCCC drop-in served 2,015 meals and received 1,250 visits.

 

All Saints’ mission is rooted in Jesus’ commandment to love one another. Our vision is to share in God’s love in action at Dundas and Sherbourne, especially those most in need, in a place of connection, welcome, and practical help. We value love, acceptance, welcome, inclusivity, and community. While All Saints is a ministry of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, our staff, supporters, and guests come from all backgrounds, beliefs and walks of life, and we welcome all who share our mission to empower and support those whom our social systems have failed.
