Our Mission

Started in 2015, the Moving In New Directions (MIND) program began as a grassroots initiative by a group of residents and medical service providers at 682 Warden Avenue, a Toronto Community Housing Corp. (TCHC) building in east Toronto.

This building is home to 224 residents, a vulnerable majority of whom have been housed here following a period of homelessness and addiction issues.

The MIND program started out by running drop-ins twice a week and has since expanded to provide two meals every day, seven days a week.

The MIND program understands the harm of substance use on individuals and the community – these include the transmission of infectious diseases, malnutrition, eviction, conflict, violence, poor health, unremitting poverty, social isolation, and premature death.
