Cota is pleased to share our 2015-2016 Annual Report. This past year was another very busy and successful one for Cota. Over the course of the year, we implemented our new Integrated Support Team structures, made a positive impact within Toronto Community Housing, contributed to emerging efforts to end chronic homelessness in the City of Toronto, provided valued support to a number of Health Links across the city, forged new partnerships and moved several of our locations. This report provides highlights of some of those recent activities and accomplishments.
Cota has a 43 year history of providing high quality innovative services in our community. While we are proud of our past accomplishments, we recognize that there is a need to make our health and social service systems more efficient, accountable and responsive to people in need. This past year we spent a great deal of time engaging with various stakeholders to gather input and feedback regarding possible future direction for Cota. This resulted in the development of Cota’s new 2016-2021 Strategic Plan. We feel it is an ambitious strategic plan and one which fully embraces the challenges and opportunities ahead of us.
As always, we are truly grateful for the dedication and support of our staff team, our partners and our funders. As a result of your ongoing commitment, Cota inspired positive change in the lives of over 3,000 people living with mental health and cognitive challenges in 2015-2016. We look forward to continuing to inspire change, together.
