Event Details

  We have some big news!   

 

 

                              invite you to  

     

Every year, more than 500 leaders from the B Corporation movement gather at The Champions Retreat to celebrate servant leadership, collective action, impact, and using business as a force for good. This year’s event will be held in Toronto and we thought, what better way to showcase our triple-bottom line approach (and our focus on people, the planet and not just profits) than by making a difference and supporting a local charitable organization that could really use our help.

 

On October 2, we’re hosting B in Action - an event that gives our friends and colleagues a chance to give back to the community in support of Margaret’s - whose mission is to provide a continuum of housing and support services for individuals, with mental health issues, to empower them to re-build and reclaim their lives through innovative programming, advocacy, housing first and education.

 

Margaret’s programming includes a variety of housing and community support services.  The organization provides a continuum of housing options which include crisis, transitional, and permanent options.  Community support services include a Drop-In Services, Mental Health and Justice programs, Senior Support Services, and Crisis Intervention.  Margaret’s target population are complex individuals experiencing poverty, addictions, and homelessness.

 

Please RSVP and join us in celebrating interdependence and using business as a force for good!

Organizer

MHCSS (Margaret’s), Inc.

Commonly known as 'Margaret's Housing & Community Support Services,' MARGARET'S is a well-regarded registered charity in Canada.  For more than 30 years, the organization had empowered individuals with mental health issues to build and reclaim their lives.  Since opening its door in 1984, MARGARET'S has expanded its housing continuum and range of support services offered to challenged individuals in four key areas: Housing, Healthcare, Support, and Justice.   Many of the support services are available to women and men, while the crisis, transitional, congregate and kinship housing programs are exclusively for women.  Individuals who use MARGARET’S services have a wide variety of diagnoses and require additional support to live in the community successfully. 



The majority of the clients we serve are often marginalized and experience poverty, stigma and live with complex issues including mental illness, physical health problems, addictions, and trauma.  When leaving incarceration or a mental health hospital after treatment, these individuals are faced with very limited options, especially if they have already lost their employment, their families and their home.  They are rootless and face a future of homelessness and loneliness.  Being in this situation can result in an endless cycle of hospitalizations and incarceration.  MARGARET’S staff work tirelessly with individuals to end this cycle and to empower them to recover, reclaim and rebuild their lives and move forward.
