DONATE AND MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
DYS is a multi-service, community-based agency committed to supporting the developmental, emotional and social needs of children, youth and their families. Our mandate is to help improve the quality of life for those faced with mental health issues and concerns, improve their self esteem, stay in school and plan and prepare for their futures.
Your donations make a huge difference in our ability to maintain a high standard in our programs and services.
Money raised goes towards:
- Hiring qualified staff who have the skills and experience to work effectively with our clients
- Medical expenses including external therapeutic programs, and dental for youth in our group home
- Food and other essentials
- Art, therapeutic, and education programming equipment and other supplies
- Client transportation costs
Delisle Youth Services receives funding from the Ontario Government, the City of Toronto, Health Canada and the United Way. However, the demands for our services exceed the funding available. Therefore, we rely on the support of corporations, foundations and individuals to deliver important programs in our community.

VOLUNTEER - BE A VITAL RESOURCE
A few hours of your time makes all the difference. Donate your expertise and join our Fundraising, Finance, or Program and Planning Committees. Provide a workshop or teach a skill to youth in our Studio. Or share your expertise in organizational development, computer training, media or corporate relations, if you have a skill to offer -- we can probably use it.
Delisle is led by a volunteer board of directors committed to serving children and youth. If you share this commitment, and are able to devote a minimum of two evenings per month to strengthening Delisle's work, contact us to learn more about the requirements to become a board member.

Save the Date for James’ Journey
9:30am | April 18, 2015
Lower Pitch, Wanless Park
The Muir Family invites you to join them at 9:30am on April 18th on Wanless Park's Lower Pitch, where the group will gather before going on a short walk that will retrace the steps they took each night before James Muir’s death by suicide in 2012.
James' widow, Mary, and their two daughters created this annual walk to help remove the stigma associated with mental illness, and to underscore the importance of early intervention in mental health and wellness.
All funds raised from James’ Journey will support Delisle Youth Services' in-school & counselling program. Help us make a meaningful difference in the lives of so many young people.To make a donation to James’ Journey, click here or you can mail your gift to:
