Social Services Activity Update 2017

Activity Report

York Region has released its first activity update, titled Opening Doors Together, which demonstrates the positive impact that Social Services is having on the lives of residents.

Each year, York Region helps more than 50,000 residents who need support with:

  • Resolving financial insecurity
  • Finding stable, affordable housing
  • Overcoming barriers to employment
  • Getting affordable licensed child care or recreation programs
  • Helping their children with special needs to be included in children services

For example, in 2017 York Region:

  • Prevented homelessness or secured housing for 1,585 households through the Housing Stability Program
  • Through Ontario Works, supported 10,000 residents to afford basic needs, and helped residents on Ontario Works to get and stay employed
  • Provided Early Intervention Services to 3,911 children with special needs (a 29 per cent increase over 2016) to support inclusion and improve the social and emotional health of children

We don’t do this alone. We work closely with our Community and Health Services colleagues, other York Region staff, residents, local agencies, employers, and community and municipal partners to ensure we are meeting the needs of our community.
