SOAR Community Services is a not-for-profit organization that has been offering help to the people in Brantford, Brant, and Haldimand for over 50 years. Today, we provide our community members with support in the areas of Employment, Housing, Justice, and Addictions and Mental Health. Some of the most vulnerable people we work with need assistance in more than one – or even all - of these categories.

For an in-depth look at the variety of services we deliver in each of these areas, please consult the individual program descriptions found on this website. Hard copies of these can also be obtained at each of our agency locations.

SOAR Community Services’ commits to quality assurance standards, through the consistent on going application of a Client Service Model which is based on current evidence informed best practices to be effective with clients worldwide. See our Agency Overview (pdf 710 KB) for more information.
