About Sanctuary Ministries of Toronto:

Established in 1985, Sanctuary Ministries of Toronto is a Christian charitable organization that works to establish and develop a holistic, inclusive and healthy community among people who have known rejection and abuse. Its community-based structure offers dignity, support and direction to people who want to regain health and purpose in their lives.

Through its drop-in programs, street outreach, church and one-to-one relationships, it provides food, clothing and basic health care. Its community meal program serves 80-160 people each meal. Sanctuary Ministries of Toronto also offers an Art program that includes music, visual arts and a drama program. Staff help individual community members access welfare, housing, legal counsel, medical care, counselling, therapy or drug rehabilitation. The charity’s focus is on offering simple friendship.

In summer of 2017, the charity closed its programs for 6 weeks to address an escalating violence problem. After several staff meetings, the charity reopened on August 8th, 2017 with a few schedule changes aimed to help the issues previously encountered.

Financial Review:

Sanctuary Ministries of Toronto is a medium-sized charity with donations of $1.4m in 2015. It also received $184k in from the Ministry of Health to operate its health clinic and $427k as fees for service, including rent and other revenues. Administrative costs were 2% of revenues. The charity did not report any fundraising costs on its audited financials or T3010 filing with the CRA. As such, for every $1 donated, 98 cents went to the cause, falling outside of Charity Intelligence's reasonable range for overhead spending. The charity has $867k in funding reserves, which can cover just short of 6 months of programs, indicating a need for funding.

This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by Sanctuary Ministries of Toronto. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
