Hello, my name is Dorothy and for the past seven years I have had the privilege of serving alongside many wonderful staff at Toronto City Mission (TCM). Established in 1879, Toronto City Mission is Toronto’s oldest and longest running outreach to people impacted by poverty. Toronto City Mission is a non-profit organization that, through God’s transformational power, builds loving relationships to bring hope to children and families impacted by poverty in six high priority communities in Toronto. One in four children in Toronto are living in poverty; we desire that each child and their families will find hope
through Jesus Christ. We believe in training, teaching and mentoring whole families to become leaders in their own communities.

In more recent years my role as Manager of Partner Relations has allowed me to bring people’s passions together. Often times, people and churches want to get involved in communities impacted by poverty but don’t know how and that is where we come in. We offer opportunities to serve in our afterschool program, tutoring, youth programs, etc. as a means of creating relationships that will bring the love of Christ to children, youth, and families impacted by poverty. As churches and volunteers connect with the community members, they are able to share their lives, joys and sorrows with the message of the
gospel at the center. I also recognize that God’s work is being done not only by TCM so we also seek out opportunities to partner with other mission organization. The opportunity to see God at work in so many different ways is truly a blessing.
