McMaster Institute for Research on Aging | Dixon Hall Centre

Suzanne Labarge, a McMaster University chancellor emerita and alumna, is investing $5 million in research to help improve the lives of marginalized and at-risk seniors, a group that is not often seen and heard. Labarge’s gift will support the creation of the MIRA | Dixon Hall Centre, a unique partnership between the university’s McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA) and Dixon Hall, an established multi-service agency located in the heart of downtown Toronto.

Essential programming made possible by the Scheinberg Relief Fund

The Scheinberg Relief Fund created an opportunity for us to act quickly and effectively for those in our community who needed a helping hand. Without their help, we might not have been able to offer some of these essential community programs. We’re thrilled to share with you the impact made by the Scheinberg Relief Fund’s contribution in our community.

No one could have imagined the health crises, the economic turmoil, the stress placed on systems across the city and beyond. And, yet, through this dark time, moments of light and warmth have shone through.
