Carefirst Seniors & Community Services Association is a non-profit charitable community services agency established since 1976.
Our spectrum of services has grown from the delivery of Chinese meals-on-wheels service to a full range of community support services, covering the whole Greater Toronto Area, and the York Region.
With a staff of 350 members (including full-time and part-time staff), the help of a pool of 1,200 active volunteers, and an annual operating budget of $17.5 million, we serve over 10,000 clients a year, including seniors and physically disabled; 2,000 of whom are "home-bound" and frail.
We are committed to serve the community with our belief that "Care" for our client's needs has always been our "first" and primary level of concern and focus. Our mission is to ensure the seniors and those in need of our services enjoy independent, enriched and quality living in the community through our social, health care and supportive services.
Carefirst is funded by Ontario Ministry of Health, Central East LHIN, Central LHIN, Toronto Central LHIN, United Way of Toronto and York Region, United Way of Peel Region, City of Toronto, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Toronto Community & Neighborhood Services Grant, and donations from the community.
