About 416 Community Support for Women:

416 Community Support for Women (416) is a daytime drop-in program for women looking to gain or give support while coping with isolation, addiction and/or mental health issues and other difficulties. 416 provides a variety of formal and informal supports, including daily breakfast and lunch, weekly food bank, social/recreational programs, and life skills training. Along with the provision of supports to meet daily basic needs, staff offer drop-in crisis intervention services seven days a week, which may include access to medical clinic and/or mental health and addiction case management staff. These services allow women to actively participate with their peers to reduce their loneliness and isolation in society, and increase participation in the community.

Drop-in staff also oversee the weekly food bank, facilitate various group activities and provide supportive counselling on a daily basis. The group activities include art and writing classes and various social/recreational programs and life skills training. Assistance with senior age health concerns, such as support to follow prescribed medication and dietary regiments, is also provided to aging women.
