The Neighbourhood Group

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

The Neighbourhood Group

The Neighbourhood Group is a multi-service agency improving and enhancing peoples’ lives and helping them live independently and with dignity. The Neighbourhood Group’s programs and services support seniors, at-risk children and youth, those who are searching for employment, people who are homeless or precariously housed and people with mental health challenges living in Toronto’s east down-town area. Neighbourhood Group’s youth program, KickStart Crew, is a popular, youth-led initiative where participants drive the program agenda. One key focus is an interactive cooking segment that includes meal planning, budgeting, food safety, and food preparation. Youth learn how to cook healthy meals and are able to take them home to share with their families, or serve them to the younger kids in the program.
