About New Circles Community Services:

Founded in 2005, New Circles Community Services’ (NCCS) core program is the Clothing Program, which provides used clothing and linens to people living in the Flemingdon Park, Thorncliffe Park and Victoria Village communities of Toronto. In 2014, NCCS expanded to include a range of programs offering connections and opportunities for skills development to community members. As a part of the new initiative to support skill building, NCCS offers retail skills training in partnership with the Retail Council of Canada, business office skills training in partnership with Seneca College and English language tutoring.

NCCS works to address the underlying needs of clothing and food insecurity by providing its clients with an assessment and referrals to agencies and resources in the community. To meet the needs of low-income seniors in the area who cannot easily access the clothing shop, NCCS runs a Senior's Mobile Mall held in various low-income seniors' residences to provide clothing and accessories to the residents. In addition to its clothing programs, NCCS provides programs to help women develop English language and literacy skills, make new friends, and explore their neighbourhood and city. The charity has seen tremendous growth from serving 775 people in 2005 to 13,000 in 2014.

In 2014, New Circles relocated to 161 Bartley Drive in Victoria Village, with expanded clothing service and added classrooms, a community café and resource centre to better serve clients.
