Our Story – Mission, Vision, and Values

Mission statement

Dorset Park Community Hub unites and strengthens diverse communities and partners by bringing everyone together under one roof, promoting access to a range of services that are dedicated to achieving well-being for all.

Vision statement

Dorset Park’s diverse community is strong, compassionate and inclusive.

As the fifth of eight Community Hubs in one of Toronto’s 13 Priority Neighbourhoods, the Dorset Park Community Hub launched thanks to lead agency Agincourt Community Services Association, which is already serving the community at the Hub’s location — in a converted strip mall space at 1911 Kennedy Road — where residents and committees are meeting, working together and making change happen.

Along with the support of Agincourt Community Services Association, the Community Hub is being made possible thanks to the collaboration of United Way Toronto, various partners and donors, and Citizenship and Immigration Canada. The Dorset Park Hub provides a much-needed shared space and various programs and services to the underserved Toronto neighbourhood.
