In 2000, Free for All Outreach Ministry was formed, due to the growing needs in Toronto’s priority neighbourhoods.
At the time the ministry was created around a church with a heart for outreach. Youth in these communities needed encouragement, feasible alternatives, and skills development which further led to the formation of the Free for All Outreach Youth Ministry. With a thriving ministry located in Toronto many of the members lived within the Region of Peel and saw a need to support youth who were dealing with similar issues as those in Toronto. This birthed Free For All Foundation (FFAF) in a non profit organization with services that have now expanded to individuals, children, youth, newcomers, seniors, families, and communities.
The foundation’s early vision was to develop and offer programs that provide help in the following areas: bible studies, counseling, homework, mentorship, job placement / apprenticeships and general encouragement.
FFAF, is a multi service organization with various locations throughout the GTA, including Brampton, Mississauga, and Toronto. The goal of FFAF is to assist our clients in becoming productive members of society. We strongly believe that no one should be denied service for any reason and seek to provide supports to marginalized communities.
FFAF mission is to provide culturally appropriate programing to support marginalized individuals, groups and communities to overcome barriers and challenges.
At FFAF our vision is to provide holistic programming that promotes a sense of well being and purpose.
To date FFAF is growing in service delivery with an overall vision to be a service hub and one stop shop for disadvantaged communities. FFAF offers the following services to date: Counselling, Apprenticeship Training, Scholarship, Leadership Development, Sport and Recreation, Volunteer Management, Community Outreach, March Break camps, Summer Camps, and before and after school programs.
