Who We Are

In September 1987, Frontlines opened its doors to the children and youth in Weston, offering them a safe place to “hang out” away from the streets. Since then, we have welcomed hundreds of “Westonians”, providing programs and services in our quest to help make Weston a better and safer place.

Started as a drop-in centre that focused primarily on music, Frontlines has been a haven for many children and youth from the Weston community – many of whom had lost their way.

Weston in the late 1980s was very different demographically from what it is now but many of the problems that currently exist, such as a high poverty rate, low income household and high unemployment, existed back then.

The first director and founder of this community centre was Tim Huff who saw a need and approached the Weston Park Baptist Church and Youth For Christ (Youth Unlimited Toronto) to partner in establishing the drop-in centre. An avid musician, Tim was able to use music to engage the youth in the initial stages. As times changed so did the types of programs and each of the directors kept building on the foundation that was laid.
