A Place Where You Belong
Malvern Family Resource Centre’s 2023-2025 Strategic Plan Summary
Malvern Family Resource Centre (MFRC) is an essential and trusted Community Hub that connects, engages, and takes collaborative action in supporting our communities to thrive. We use our public spaces, and our deep and authentic connections, to bring people together with a focus on those that need us the most. Each year, MFRC provides impactful, holistic, and highly accessible programs and services to several thousand children, youth, families, women, newcomers, and seniors.
Our children’s program supports young and school-aged children to get a great start. Our Malvern Urban Farm drives fresh food access, with our Youth Hub providing a safe and welcoming space for young people to connect. Our newcomer programs engage and support new community members, and our Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility team delivers targeted programming that focuses on building more equitable and just communities. We offer counseling and resources for survivors of gender-based violence and our older adult members engage in social, educational, physical and mental wellness programs. Finally, we use the agency that we gain from engaging in these, and other frontline programs, to elevate the voices of Malvern and Scarborough community members as we know that system and policy change are the ultimate levers to promote equity.
