Simcoe Community Services Foundation

We raise funds to improve the quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities.

The Simcoe Community Services Foundation is a registered charity established in 1998 that directly supports the activities of Simcoe Community Services. The agency provides support to children, youth, adults and seniors with intellectual disabilities and their families in Simcoe County.

Why Give?

Many people with intellectual disabilities are living on or below the poverty line and barely have enough money to cover rent, food and basic health expenses. This means recreational activities and specialized equipment that would contribute to a better quality of life are simply out of reach.

Help us ensure that people of all abilities have opportunities to be included in their community. With the support of many generous donors, our fundraising campaigns support the purchase of accessibility equipment; cover the cost of specialized housing needs; assist families with respite; send children to camp; provide youth with skills development; offer adults and seniors recreational and leisure activities.

How Can You Help?
