Who We Are
ESS Support Services is a well established, award-winning, not-for-profit community support agency that has been serving marginalized individuals, especially seniors, older adults with disabilities, families and caregivers in the Etobicoke community, and beyond, since 1983.
A community leader for over 35 years, ESS offers a diverse range of high-quality services and accredited programs designed to support the independence, social well being and health of our clients, along with a helping hand and respite for their families and caregivers.
Led by governing Board of Directors, we pride ourselves on delivering the best possible care and excellent client services with our team of professional, committed and compassionate staff who plan and implement client-centered care. The range and scope of our assistance would not be possible without the over 300 skilled volunteers engaged in the support of our programs, events and agency initiatives.
As an agency accredited through Accreditation Canada, we are focused on client care and having a safe, positive and inclusive environment is our priority. You can expect to receive a high standard of quality care and service to meet your personal needs and the needs of your loved ones.
At ESS you will find a caring, responsive and community focused multi-service agency, and a family-oriented team with a heart.
Our logo is a symbol of the Alder Tree. The word Etobicoke means a place where the Alder Trees grow”. Just as the Alder Tree has longevity, many branches and supportive roots which run deep within the community, ESS is a branch of your care and a community mainstay serving and supporting your independence and needs.
