Listen. Respect. Respond.

Here to Help (H2H) is a multi-service, community-based, mobile team that responds to immediate concerns in the community to assist with conflict reduction, crisis intervention, and de-escalation.

Our goal is to collaborate with agencies, businesses, residents and other key stakeholders in the neighbourhoods of Church-Wellesley and Moss Park to enhance community connection, empathy and belonging.

It is a collaboration between Gerstein Crisis Centre, Inner City Family Health Team,  Homes FirstSeeds of HopeDixon Hall and The Neighbourhood Group, funded through the City of Toronto.

H2H offers mobile on-site support and de-escalation, harm reduction, access to medical supports, culturally appropriate services, and follow-up services.

Community members and businesses can call:

416-915-4200

Tuesday – Saturday, 2 pm – 10 pm*

The number will roll over to Gerstein Crisis Centre’s 24-hour services for assistance outside of those hours.

Our team can help in situations where:

  • Someone is experiencing distress, mental health, and/or substance use crisis and needs assistance
  • You are concerned about someone‚Äôs safety, but no act of violence or imminent threat has occurred
  • Someone is agitated or disruptive
  • A person seems to need or want more help than you feel able to offer
