Community Resource Connections of Toronto – 416 Community Support for Women

Group Name: Community Resource Connections of Toronto – 416 Community Support for Women

Description: CRCT operates an active web site containing information about events, news and resources. The web site also has a searchable database of mental health services, supports and resources available in Toronto. We are working to provide a comprehensive source of information which meets the needs of consumer/survivors, family members and service providers.

The 416 Drop-In Centre provides support and services to women dealing with mental health issues who are homeless, street-involved, dually diagnosed, and socially isolated. The program offers short-term case management services to access community services through a coordinated and holistic approach. The 416 is known for working with women whom other agencies find very difficult to serve. The program also offers a trustee program to help clients with money management. Model of service is psychosocial rehabilitation. **** Serves women in the Downtown Toronto area.
