About Toronto City Mission:

Established in 1879, Toronto City Mission (TCM) is Toronto's oldest and longest running outreach to people living in poverty. For 125 years, TCM assisted people living in poverty through the provision of food, clothing, evangelism and retreat opportunities. In 1999, TCM saw a void in the work of poverty relief in Toronto. Since then, TCM has focused on developing and transforming children, families and communities rather than providing relief assistance.

Toronto City Mission is a Christian organization that works in Toronto's poor communities and partners with others to achieve positive change. It currently operates in the neighbourhoods of Flemingdon Park, Jane-Finch, Kingston-Galloway, St. James Town, Victoria Village and Willowtree. TCM provides tutoring, mentorship, and leadership programs for youth, support programs for inner-city women and single mothers, and day camps for children and families living in poverty.

In 2016, TCM and the University of Toronto ran an event showing opportunities in higher learning for 42 mothers and their children through the Role Model Moms program. 

Financial Review:

Toronto City Mission is considered a small-cap charity with donations and special events revenues of $734k in F2016.
