Supporting CHATS

As a not-for-profit charitable organization, CHATS depends on the generosity of valued donors.

Although CHATS is partially funded by the Central Local Health Integration Network, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and the United Way of Toronto & York Region, the demand for increased services and programs necessitates the need for additional funding.

With your support, CHATS can continue to provide York Region and South Simcoe with leadership that delivers quality care, service, and innovation, while enhancing the independence of older adults living at home.

CHATS’ achievements and service delivery model have been commended by CARF International.
