About Delisle Youth Services:

Founded in 1970, Delisle Youth Services works in partnerships in Toronto to provide comprehensive and individual services for children, youth and families, particularly focusing on care and mental health. It seeks to be a lead agency in providing innovative programs to children and youth.

Delisle Youth Services is a multi-dimensional charity providing diverse programs. Delisle's single largest program (80% of spending)is its residential care for children and youth with special needs and complex conditions. This compassionate care produces a social benefit of nearly $2 for every dollar invested.

Delisle spends $4.2 million on many other programs serving youth. Hillsdale is a home for 7 youth that is staffed 24/7 providing a place to live when going through family breakdowns, physical or sexual abuse, emotional trauma or mental illness. Delisle reports that 21% of the youth who left Hillsdale showed an increase in overall functioning, the highest improvement in 5 years. Day treatment programs helped 39 high school students stay in school with "moderate success" in improving behaviour, attendance and credit achievement. The charity reports that 37% of participants showed improvement. SESSIONS is a drug-education program using music, art, literature and games to give youth between the ages of 13 and 24 the knowledge and skills to self-navigate through a complex, drug-using world ("know" vs "no"). Mental health counselling is provided in 2 Toronto high-schools supporting hundreds of high school students each year.STARS@TheStudio is a LGBTQ drop-in center used by 350 youth in F2015. Delisle Youth Services is strongly committed to social results evaluations which are posted on its website.

Financial Review:

Despite its large size with total revenues of $29.1m, Charity Intelligence sees Delisle as a small charity with annual donations below $500,000 a year. Excluding the funding from United Way, Delisle receives less than $100,000 in private donations. Delisle's administrative costs are 5% of total revenues and fundraisings costs are 15% of donations. Total overhead costs are 20% of donations, within Ci's reasonable range. Delisle has funding reserves of $3.1m that cover 12% of its annual program costs.
