Who We Are
Storefront Humber Inc. is a non-profit, charitable organization located in South Etobicoke. We developed out of the growing concern for residents living in the area who were without adequate support to remain independent in their own home. The agency started as a result of caring Humber College students and volunteers and has now flourished to a thriving agency of over 150 employees, providing services to over 2,300 clients.
Board of Directors
Chair of the Board
"The Purpose of Storefront Humber Inc. is to provide supportive care to seniors and adults with disabilities to help them attain the best quality of life possible in their homes and in the community."
"The Vision of Storefront Humber Inc. is to be recognized as an innovative leader in the provision of supportive services promoting a healthy and independent life in the community for seniors and adults with disabilities."
Storefront Humber Inc. has provided services now for 40 years in our community. During the past year the board of directors and staff worked on future development and direction of services and programs needed to support independent living and dignity in the community. Once again, Storefront Humber has gone through the Accreditation process with Accreditation Canada based in Ottawa. This recognition means that we meet national standards of quality for health services. We continue to advocate for additional funds as the growth in senior population increases the need for additional funding for extra services is required.
At present, Storefront Humber is a multi-service agency funded by:
Ministry of Health
Toronto Central LHIN
City of Toronto
New Horizons for Seniors
Our agency also receives donations and gifts-in-kind from the business sector, community organizations, and clients. These donations graciously help to enhance our services.
Multi-Sector Service Accountability Agreement
April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020
We are third year students in the University of New Brunswick-Humber College collaborative Bachelor of Nursing program. We developed a community project in collaboration with Storefront Humber Inc. to meet the needs of the Mimico community. Caregiver burden was identified as an issue in the community and as a result we created a brochure with a list of centralized resources for caregivers experiencing burden in the Mimico community. The brochure includes information regarding self-care, self referral, and available community resources in Mimico.
