North Simcoe Community Futures Development Corporation, Midland

Financial institutions are not likely to loan money to social enterprises, but North Simcoe CFDC is proud of its record supporting much needed community organizations.  In 1996, a loan to Wendat Community Psychiatric Support Programs helped them purchase a building to deliver much needed programming to the local community and commence their long term plans for creating a sustainable delivery model for their organizations. 

Another wonderful organization, Habitat for Humanity North Simcoe benefitted from the support provided by NSCFDC to build a ReStore. 

“The critical success factors to this community-based grass roots program are the volunteers.  Volunteers (who sit on the NSCFDC Board of Directors) provide the vision and leadership needed to help ensure objectives are achieved,” says Debra Muenz, General Manager of NSCFDC.  “In particular, we’d like to recognize the efforts of William (Bill) Moss, a founding board member and a 25 year volunteer.   His contributions have been immeasurable and long-lasting.”
