Out of the Cold

Out of the Cold

Public health directives at the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic required closure of the program.  The Friday evening Community Meal and Sleepover for up to 30 adult Homeless individuals has been suspended for the foreseeable future.

Instead, the Out of the Cold partners provide Sunday meals to Agincourt Community Services (ACSA) for distribution between  9:00 am and 3:00 pm as follows:

  • Tuesday to Saturday at 4155 Sheppard Ave. E.
  • Sunday to Monday at 202 Markham Rd.

Sunday meals are supported by the Out of the Cold program.

Hotel Shelter Programs

Another key area of support is Outreach to the Hotel Shelter programs in Scarborough.  Residents look forward to the Social Mixers – buffet, live music, a fun raffle – and the distribution of personal care items and the opportunity to choose items of clothing.

Mission and Service

Mission and Service

Knox United Church works through the United Church of Canada’s Mission and Service to assist people around the world, across Canada and locally.

Agincourt Community Services
Association - ACSA

In the early 1970’s, eight local churches came together to assist local residents who were in need. Reverend Bruce Scott from Knox United Church devoted nearly half of his time in launching Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA).
The work of ACSA continues after almost 50 years.
