Welcome to Simcoe Community Services

Simcoe Community Services is a charitable, non-profit organization that is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.  The agency was established in 1953 by parents wishing to offer their children with intellectual disabilities an alternative to institutional placement.  Presently, the agency operates a Preschool Services Division, a Community Living Division as well as Barrie Housing Support Services.

Simcoe Community Services employs over 650 full-time and part-time staff making it one of the larger employers in Simcoe County.  

In November 2011, Simcoe Community Services was reaccredited by the Council of Quality and Leadership, International and had the distinction of being the first organization in Canada to be awarded the accreditation designation of Person Centered Excellence.

The Simcoe Community Services Foundation was established in 1998.  The Foundation raises funds for programs and services offered by Simcoe Community Services where regular funding sources do not exist.
