Building Together: The Future Home of Stella's Place
A concrete commitment to young adult mental health
We are $1 million away from completing this vital healing hub in the heart of downtown Toronto.
This welcoming three-storey 11,222 square foot building will be a permanent home. It will double our capacity and offer a wide range of services all under one roof.
We’re putting the final strokes on our new home…all that’s left is YOU!
As things start to open up in response to high vaccination rates and low Covid-19 case counts, Stella’s Place is getting ready to open our doors as well, and we can’t wait to have our community back and see you all in person again!
This is your opportunity to add your individual stroke by taking advantage of the matching gift opportunity offered by the Green-Sanderson family for double the impact.
Your investment today will allow us to open doors in early 2022.
Canada’s mental health system is failing young adults. Emergency rooms are over-whelmed and ill-suited to treating young people for their mental health struggles. Untreated mental illness is debilitating, and all too frequently has tragic consequences.

At Stella’s Place, we have designed and are delivering a solution that is responsive to the needs of young adults while relieving the strain on hospitals.
Stella’s Place is keeping young people out of emergency departments and costly inpatient services, saving Ontario $2.75M in direct costs annually.
Employment participation outcomes save an additional $2.88M in social assistance payments, while increasing provincial income tax payments by $232,000.
More Than Bricks & Mortar
Stella’s Place at 54 Wolseley will be a a vital healing hub with:
Vibrant, open spaces bathed in natural light, uplifting the senses and fostering a spirit of hope
Natural materials and green space, soothing the body and grounding the mind
Unobstructed sightlines and intuitive building navigation, promoting a sense of ease and belonging
Modern technology and multi-media resources, supporting the spectrum of young adult learning styles and enhancing experiential healing
Inclusive, barrier-free design, respecting the dignity of all individuals
Multi-function room design, accommodating our wide menu of current and future programs
Fully equipped community and teaching kitchens, encouraging sharing and holistic wellness
Comfortable and flexible work space for staff, expanding our ability to create, collaborate, innovate and grow
We have outgrown our leased space at 18 Camden Street and must relocate—or risk turning away young adults in need. A newer, larger and permanent flagship location will reassure our young adult participants that Stella’s Place is here to stay.
