Founded in 1970, Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA) works to improve the quality of life in Scarborough, Ontario by supporting youth, new immigrants, young mothers, and the underprivileged. The charity operates six main programs: Child and Family, Youth, Homeless Services, Food Security, Newcomer Services and Community Engagement. The charity does not provide a breakdown of its spending on its programs.

ACSA's Child and Family program works with children and parents through early childhood education, workshops, and after-school programs. The programs aim to have children succeed in school and life by ensuring that they receive healthy parenting and social stimulation as well as helping to develop language and math skills. In F2021, this program reached 154 participants and supported 120 families through after school programming. 

ACSA's Youth program consists of the Provincial Youth Outreach Workers (YOW) and R.A.C.K.S programs, that are designed to provide support to marginalized youth in underserved neighbourhoods. In F2021, YOW supported 200 youth whereas R.A.C.K.S. supported 145 youth. Four Back-to-School programs for youth were also launched and saw 500 participants.

ACSA's Homeless Drop-In and Outreach Services program provides support for individuals 18 years and over who are experiencing homelessness. People accessing this program can receive basic necessities as well as assistance in finding stable housing. In F2021, this program served 102,317 meals to people experiencing homelessness and made 248 referrals to requested services. The Harm Reduction team also distributed 550 naloxone kits, 5,048 safer use kits and trained 200 people on overdose recognition.

ACSA's Food Security program helps increase access to culturally relevant, affordable and healthy food. The program reduces barriers to food access and aims to create healthy communities. In F2021, the Food Centre served 2,500 meals/week. The charity also developed the Cooking Healthy Together program which saw 100 participants. This program allows community members to come together and explore healthy cooking.

ACSA's Newcomer Services program delivers settlement support and services for new immigrants, refugees and newcomer LGBTQ+ members. Services include education, employment, legal, and covid-19 specific support. In F2021, the charity supported 2,449 newcomers, of which 40% were refugees. 190 newcomers benefited from employment and entrepreneurship programs. The legal centre supported 1,134 clients and connected 194 to free consultation.

ACSA's Community Engagement program aims to increase resident engagement in the delivery of community initiatives while ensuring the needs of the community are met. This program also includes the Financial Empowerment and Problem Solving program, that provides tax filing services, one-on-one financial support and relevant workshops. In F2021, The Bay Mills Community Hub engaged 720 community members and the Chester Le Centre conducted door-to-door outreach at 200 homes. The Dorset Park Community Hub supported 80 women in the English Circle for Women Program and 80 seniors in the Technology Club.

At the time of this report, the charity's F2021 audited financial statements were available however its T3010 filing with the CRA was unavailable. Ci was unable to report on the charity's F2021 financials as the T3010 is needed for reconciliation.

Agincourt Community Services Association has donations of $2.4m in F2020. The charity received $3.7m in government funding, representing 56% of total revenues. Administrative costs are 10% of revenues less investment income, and fundraising costs are 2% of donations. For every dollar donated, 88 cents go to the cause, which is within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. ACSA has $2.6m in funding reserves which could cover over five months of program costs.
