Grace Centre for Mercy & Justice
The Grace Centre for Mercy & Justice (formerly known as Hope Toronto) is the means through which we educate, equip, and empower individuals to love and serve the City of Toronto.
IN WORD AND DEED
We recognize that we share in humanity’s brokenness (Rom. 3:23) and seek to alleviate the burden within our city. As Christians, we acknowledge we are called by Christ to love and serve the broken, resource poor, oppressed, and marginalized (Luke 10:25-37; Matt. 25:31-46) just as our Saviour did. And like our Saviour we are called to act out our faith through both word and deed (James 2:14-17; Luke 24:15). Ultimately, we want to extend love and grace to all in the name of Jesus Christ because we know that true freedom for all is found in the gospel, which alone has the power for real transformation.
Currently we are affiliated with six different organizations that serve various marginalized and oppressed populations in the city. These agencies function as our experts in the field in helping us to understand more about how we can love and serve their clients through their respective agency or on our own.
The Adam House serves refugee claimants in the west end of the city by offering transitional housing and job skills training, amongst other services to residents.
A program under Youth Unlimited that serves the needs of homeless and street-involved youth through outreach and mentorship.
The PCC serves women with unexpected pregnancies through pre/postnatal support. This includes, but is not limited to, offering pregnancy tests, options counseling and referrals out to appropriate resources.
An organization whose mandate is to reduce the amount of children entering the child welfare system. This is done through recruitment of host families, who are thoroughly screened, to care for and take in for children for a temporary period of time.
An organization that serves children in the Regent Park area by offering tutoring and other after-school programs.
TCM serves children in some of Toronto’s high-needs neighbourhoods by offering tutoring and other after-school programs.
Grace Advocacy Clinic
The Grace Centre for Mercy & Justice is launching the Grace Advocacy Clinic (formerly referred to as the Hope Toronto Clinic) in October 2018. The Clinic is intended to fill a gap for people in our city who need help with applying to Ontario Social Services for Ontario Works or the Ontario Disability Support Program.

Mercy & Justice Life Group
The Grace Centre for Mercy & Justice will be hosting a Life Group on Wednesdays at 2 PM. This group will do a series of book studies and is geared towards those interested in reaching out to our neighbourhood.
