Dickinsfield Amity House exists to promote and encourage the independence and well-being of individuals and families by providing social, recreational, and educational programming at the preventive level. Their current programs include Teaching Tots, an Early Intervention preschool program; Drop in, where the community can get together, addressing social isolation and connecting to resources; outreach, where a social worker can work with program participants and connect them to services and supports; and their ECALA funded programs, ELL, Collective Kitchens and Umbrella Kitchens. Dickinsfield Amity House is located in a CRHC unit with a secondary location in the Londonderry Community League. Their program participants reflect the diversity of the community, with a higher than city-wide average number of newcomers, single-parent families, families living with low income and unemployed/ underemployed individuals.
