Enjoy some history reading this summer

Family Service Toronto has a rich history as one of the city's oldest and most vital social service organizations. We've been helping families and individuals face challenges and make positive changes in their lives for 100 years.

Our new history booklet – A Century of Community Service – highlights a century of work and accomplishments from 1914 to 2014. It is now available for download as a PDF or online reading.
