County of Simcoe and Town of Midland Release New Community Response Toolkit


Following the October 2023 Hope, Housing, and Health homelessness prevention forum in Midland, the County of Simcoe and Town of Midland are pleased to release a new Community Response Toolkit. This reader-friendly guidebook is available to those across North Simcoe who want to know more about supporting vulnerable people in their own communities and aims to unite everyone in championing a brighter future for unhoused individuals.

The Toolkit contains helpful information on access to supports, services, and resources available in the area including health resources, community safety information, and a “Who to Call” poster. It also provides tips and guidance for concerned individuals when interacting with persons experiencing challenges to help connect them with the right local service providers.

The Who to Call poster is a quick-reference sheet that can be hung or kept in a convenient and accessible location. It includes direct contact information for emergency and non-emergency services, and for local service providers who are able to provide a range of services, including, mental health, housing, and other community supports.

The Community Response Toolkit and Who to Call poster are available for download at

“During our October 2023 Hope, Housing, and Health homelessness prevention forum, the County of Simcoe and the Town of Midland worked to bring community leaders together to help vulnerable individuals. Community service partners and funding agencies worked as a team to share resources, develop strong strategies, and improve services. It is because of this level of collaboration that we were able to provide this comprehensive toolkit, available to our community as a whole, so we can provide even greater support to those who need us.” ~ Warden Basil Clarke, County of Simcoe

“This guidebook provides much-needed resources to our residents, business owners and our most vulnerable citizens experiencing challenges in their lives. The resulting work of last year’s symposium is a positive step forward in making Midland a safe and vibrant place for all. We are grateful for the County’s support and the community’s input to further our efforts in connecting at-risk citizens to support services in the Midland area.” ~ Mayor Bill Gordon, Town of Midland
