Open house Drop in

For more than 25 years, Fred Victor’s Open House — an umbrella program located at our community services site at the Queen Street East and Jarvis Street corner – has been core to the lives of people living on the street, in shelters or in low-income housing.

Every Monday to Friday, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., Open House staff encourages people to connect to staff and programs, meet other people and grab a healthy snack. This is the starting point for meeting people’s basic, as well as their more complex needs.

Staff assists by:

  • answering questions about other Fred Victor programs and services
  • facilitating creative, active and empowering social/recreational programs
  • providing referrals to doctors, dentists, legal help, training programs and employment opportunities
  • offering gently-used clothing from our clothing room
  • promoting partnerships with other organizations that can assist with replacing I.D., opening bank accounts, applying for income supports, filing income tax, getting prescription eye glasses and more

Several programs are run under the umbrella of the Open-House.

Many of our Creative Programs  are also held in this space.
