Making a Difference

Lumenus understands that many of our users and clients will need access to more than one service. That’s why programs and services are integrated and woven together in a meaningful way. Equally important, the people who depend on us get the assistance they need to navigate the system both inside Lumenus and between other organizations. Our caring and skilled staff consult with community partners, including childcare, school and health care, to help coordinate services. We also work in close partnership with other organizations/service providers to ensure that all user needs are fully met. This operating approach helps us fulfill our purpose: To create seamless, easier access while reducing barriers to care and expertise. In this way, we ensure everyone in Toronto has the opportunity to be seen, be heard and to be well.

Becoming Lumenus

Our journey began with the amalgamation of four legacy agencies. In April 2020, Adventure Place, The Etobicoke Children’s Centre, Griffin Centre and Skylark Children, Youth & Families became one. United as Lumenus, the commitment and expertise of each legacy agency remains and now a new, more seamless continuum of care and support is provided to existing and future clients.
