Circle of Care is a community-based, non-profit registered charity. It has been serving GTA residents since 1974 with 550 staff and more than 350 volunteers that provide care in your home. This charity provides care to diverse communities as well as ethnic and religious groups in more than 20 different languages.
For almost 140 years, Jewish Family and Child (JF&CS) has responded to the emotional, social and physical needs of the GTA's burgeoning Jewish community and beyond. The dedicated staff numbering 100 includes social workers, child care workers, family life educators, as well as therapists and counsellors, foster parents and hundreds of devoted volunteers. All these people provide more than 30 community services from four locations across the GTA and they offer programs spanning every age and social and economic background.
Jewish Family and Child is continually changing with the needs of the community and strengthening connections with children, women, men, families, seniors and the Jewish community at large. When poverty, violence or any kind of abuse touches our community, we respond with a wide range of services and programs designed to both intervene and assist.
We support and integrate new immigrants today to build both a strong Canada and Jewish community for tomorrow.
JIAS Toronto assists legal immigrants and refugees to meet the basic financial, social, legal and other requirements of immigration. We foster the well-being of these new arrivals by providing a full range of outreach, support, counseling, training and referral resources with the goal of helping Jewish newcomers integrate into the GTA's Jewish community and Canadian society as a whole.
We recognize newcomers enrich the communities they migrate to and both groups benefit. We envision a continuum of services beginning with a "welcome home" type reception which then helps the newcomer get on their feet and finally ends with the presentation of opportunities for every new immigrant to contribute to and participate in all aspects of Jewish community life.

Reena's unique emphasis is on providing Judaic programming and a Jewish environment for our clients. This enables them to develop spiritually and feel a connection and sense of belonging to their roots, culture and community. However, Reena also encourages the expression of other cultures and religious roots, regardless of our clients' background or denomination.
