Newmarket – Community Living Central York

Founded in 1954, Community Living Central York provides a friend, a job, and a home to adults in our community with an intellectual disability. CLCY’s support and care is lifelong – for as long as it is needed.

Our Vision: A community where everyone belongs.

Our Mission: Enable people with an intellectual disability to achieve their fullest potential.

CLCY supports approximately 400 individuals each year. Services include, day support programs, employment strategies and job placement, supported group living, supported independent living, associate/foster family care, and respite support.

Plans are underway to move into a new, larger home on Penrose Avenue in Newmarket – one that will reduce the wait list and greatly increase programming capacity.

We look forward to supporting Community Living Central York with our Community Product Initiative fundraising for 2019!

Sharon – Holland Landing Food Pantry

Holland Landing Food Pantry prides itself in the philosophy of giving a hand up, not a hand out. It is the only in-library, pop-up food pantry in York Region, located at the East Gwillimbury Public Library, Holland Landing Branch.

Assisting families and individuals with food security issues, this essential service provides access to food without the barrier of transportation – and the costs associated with travelling to a food pantry in another community.

Community members and business partners, like Vince’s, make donations that stay local and support marginalized individuals.  Volunteers are also key to their ability to support the large number of clients they serve monthly.

The organization takes a holistic approach to wellness, which includes literacy, employment assistance, housing, and social services referrals.
