About family services at Portage


Portage Ontario is proud to be associated with the Concurrent Disorders Support Services Group (CDSS), an agency referral network for people with both mental illness and substance addiction in the City of Toronto.

The group, a consortium of 44 community agencies in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), is made up of some of the city’s leading mental health and community agencies. CDSS offers a high degree of support to its clients by helping them fast-track and navigate the system, referring clients to other fellow agencies that can offer additional support not offered by their own agency. It is an innovative approach to putting clients first by extending effective holistic support to those most vulnerable in our community.
