Social Service charities describe themselves as organizations which address the basic needs of people in our communities. They feed the hungry, give shelter to the homeless and provide a safe place to people in danger. You can narrow this list by using the tools on the left side of the page.
These non-profit organizations may include soup kitchens and food banks for people experiencing poverty, shelters for people without a home or who need to escape abuse and persecution, service centres for children and youth, support organizations for the elderly, and organizations which address violence against women. Besides providing direct care and services to those in need, these charities may also serve to educate the public on issues related to social services, to provide advocacy for those in need, and to offer support and guidance for direct service organizations.
