Who are we?

Dorothy’s Place is a program for 2SLGBTQI+ seniors in Scarborough and East York.

We realized that there were no support programs for 2SLGBTQI+ seniors outside of downtown Toronto, and many in our community living in the eastern areas of GTA were facing social isolation and discrimination. We created Dorothy’s Place in October 2018 in response to the problems faced by this underserved group.

We want to provide a safe space and community of support where participants can explore connection and healing. We want to promote active living and wellness to improve the overall quality of life of our participants.

Anchor 1

Together, we aim to grow and foster connections within the 2SLGBTQI+ community.

We are proud to be awarded Inspiring Community Organization of the Year for 2020/2021 by the Inspire Awards.
