About Central Neighbourhood House
Welcome to our neighbourhood. Central Neighbourhood House is the second oldest settlement house in Toronto. For the past 100 years, our team of staff and volunteers has been working hand in hand with our neighbours, offering a wide range of excellent programs for children and youth, new Canadians, families, women and seniors. Have a look around our website to find out how you can become involved with CNH or come see us at 349 Ontario Street (just north of Dundas St. E. and west of Parliament St.).

Our Bright Idea this year is an exciting pilot project, bringing downtown Toronto Aboriginal youth together in a learning experience changes lives. Outside Looking In provides opportunities for self expression to Indigenous youth through the arts. For the past 5 years, they have worked with youth in rural Aboriginal commnunities across Canada. Toronto Council Fire provides a wide range of support services and skill training and development initiatives to Toronto's urban Aboriginal community. Together, they will provide a unique experience to urban youth, thanks to the support of donors to the CNH Innovations Fund. Click here to learn more about Outside Looking In and the project.

Through the Innovations Fund, CNH works with partners in the downtown east Toronto community to identify opportunities for innovation and explore possibilities that may not get funded otherwise. Creating programs and services that address issues of our aging population, food security, poverty, homelessmess and the needs of children and youth, all in the context of the most diverse community in North America, is the challenge of the 21st century. The Innovations Fund provides, each year, a targeted infusion of funds for a single brilliant idea that meets that challenge! Ideas for new projects and community needs are aired at the yearly Bright Ideas Symposium. Watch this site for more information.
