Covid 19 Response
African Community Services managed to shift our service delivery online. While most of our programming is critically affected by the loss of our onsite programs, we continue being dedicated to helping and supporting our clients get the support they need during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the outset of the pandemic, mental health has emerged as an urgent, and ongoing need across the GTA. During this crisis, African Community Services scaled up our investment in mental health and has continued to provide key health and wellness support to our clients. We have devised virtual counseling and engaging via WhatsApp and other social programs to provide more privacy while families are in isolation at home.
