  • Single Mother in progress annual fund raiser
    Annual Fundraiser

SMIP was founded by a single mother of four in 2009. After becoming a survivor of many horrendous obstacles, at age 27, Sherril Downer decided it was time to make a change. She began assisting mothers in her community in any way she could. After serving the community for two years, SMIP became a registered non-profit organization in June 2011. Sherril operated the organization for two years from her living room while using whatever community centers as she could afford. Beginning with only two families.

In March 2013 SMIP became a registered charitable organization providing programs and services that assist the mothers with their basic needs, education, and employment to 108 families and 198 children within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
