Health Bank Program

We provide short term assistance only until a client can find a longer term solution. Clients are typically low income families and individuals either working or on WSIB or EI and are not covered by social service programs or other medical insurance plans.

In emergencies, we can sometimes assist immediately, but you may be referred to another social service agency or we may apply for assistance on your behalf.

Advice is provided on how to obtain longer term assistance and how to access other programs.

How to Get Assistance

Call us to make an appointment to ensure we can see you on the day you want. We do accept drop in visits, but it may mean you have to wait or return another day if we are fully booked.

You will meet with one of our intake workers who will review your needs and assess the best way to assist you.

If you get our answering machine, we try to get back to you as soon as possible and the next business day for sure. Feel free to call us again if you don't get a call back.
