Starting January 17, the Library is offering a new drop-in service at Central in partnership with York Region Social Services. This drop-in service provides a safe space where adults and families can connect with a York Region Outreach Team member to find out more about community partners and services, and get information on housing, financial and legal support, and employment resources in your area.

A York Region Outreach Team member can help:

  • Provide referrals to other agencies as required, and advocate on your behalf 
  • Follow-up on your referrals from community agencies, regional programs and government officials 
  • Assess and respond to your unique situation, including assessing your eligibility for the Ontario Works programs
  • Work to implement your short and long-term goals while removing barriers to services
  • Provide support to individuals and families to secure and maintain safe housing by making referrals to employment, financial and community resources 
  • Accompanying you to legal and/or medical appointments
