Welcome to St. Stephen's Community House

St. Stephen's Community House is a unique, community-based social service agency that has been serving the needs of Kensington Market and surrounding neighbourhoods in downtown West Toronto since 1962.

  • Employment services for youth and adults
  • Settlement assistance and English classes for new Canadians
  • Services for frail and isolated seniors
