Yorktown - A Great Place to Work
The passion, dedication and enthusiasm of the Yorktown team defines us in the social services sector. We are an agency that is committed to excellence in all of the programs and services that we provide to our clients. That commitment drives us to recruit and retain the very best team members who share our vision and strive continuously to meet our client's needs.
Yorktown Family Services is a community-based nonprofit social services agency dedicated to providing transitional housing to abused women and their children, and effective, accessible, quality mental health treatment, prevention and out-reach services to children, youth, women and families. We are uniquely organized to deliver services through two independent but integrated organizations: Yorktown Child and Family Centre - a children's mental health centre, and Yorktown Shelter for Women - a shelter for women and their children who are fleeing an abusive relationship. Yorktown is known for its dedicated commitment to professional service delivery standards and for its innovative program offerings that respond to the changing needs of the community. Yorktown is a vital community resource for thousands of children, youth, women and families in Toronto's west end.
As an organization, Yorktown strives to create an open, communicative and supportive work environment where all team members are valued and respected. We believe in supporting the professional and personal needs of our team members.
The agency fosters a work environment that is both welcoming and safe where everyone is encouraged to work independently and as part of a team of other dedicated individuals to effectively meet our client needs. Innovative ideas and creative approaches to problem solving are encouraged. The wide continuum of services offered to Yorktown clients provides staff with a range of opportunities for growth and professional development. Career enhancement and development is supported by training options that help employees grow professionally and personally.
Beyond a competitive salary and a comprehensive benefits package Yorktown offers staff the opportunity to work within a team-based culture where colleagues support each other to meet the day to day challenges of achieving excellence in client service.
The cultural backgrounds of Yorktown's staff reflect the diverse community the agency serves. The staff's rich mix of diverse backgrounds, skills and experience enhances the Yorktown workplace experience and promotes the sharing of ideas, customs and tolerance.
