St. Stephen’s Community House

This is an outstanding city.
But you don't just take.
You've got to build.

St. Stephen’s Community House

St. Stephen’s Community House (SSCH) is a multi-service organization that works with individuals and communities in Downtown West Toronto to identify, prevent, and alleviate social and economic problems. SSCH addresses issues including hunger, homelessness, unemployment, isolation, violence, HIV and AIDS, youth alienation, and newcomer integration. Recently, SSCH opened the Youth Arcade Studio in Kensington Market to provide low-income youth from the neighbourhood with free, high-quality ­fine art instruction classes, instrumental music classes, and gym-based recreation activities.
