Welcome

 

Welcome to the John Howard Society of Toronto. We provide programs and services to adults (18+) who have been in conflict with the law. Our focus is in three areas: alternatives to prison, in-reach to the prisons and post-release services for inmates upon leaving jail. We have four offices in the Toronto area (Eglinton West, Danforth, Scarborough and South Etobicoke). Our goal is to make Toronto safer by prevention, intervention and reintegration. We provide New Beginnings!

 TORONTO- “We are confident that our enhanced capacity will better serve people who are and who have been in conflict with the law.  Together, we can make communities safer and improve the outcomes of those we help.  I am extremely proud of the work being done at the new John Howard Society of Toronto and I am honored to lead this team as we consolidate, support and expand our programs”, said Sonya Spencer, the John Howard Society of Toronto’s new Executive Director.

Leaders in correctional programming and related services, the new John Howard Society of Toronto boasts over 80 years of experience in the Greater Toronto Area with strong legacies and a foundation built through both John Howard and St. Leonard’s Society.

A statement from The Board of Director’s President, Gus Lyn-Piluso, thanked outgoing Director Greg Rogers for his role in helping to catalyze the merger to make it reality.  He also expressed a sincere gratitude to all of our stakeholders, clients, and employees for their patience and support.  He said, “This is truly an exciting time in correctional programming.   Together, we eagerly await what we know will be the positive results of the synergies of this amalgamation which will ultimately provide a full continuum of services in the support of safe and healthy communities”.
