In 1971, at a public meeting of the Lakeshore Community Council, it was decided that a health and multi-service centre was needed in the community. In 1973, residents and local agencies came together to work on developing a coordinated community service centre. The community organizing efforts finally paid off in 1976 when LAMP became a reality with funds provided by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Community and Social Services.
LAMP was funded as a pilot project to provide health services and to coordinate human services in the area. In October 1976, LAMP's doors at 185 Fifth Street in Etobicoke , Ontario , Canada , were officially opened to the public by Premier of Ontario the honourable William Davis.
The building quickly filled with programmes and services. With the help of the City of Etobicoke and a fundraising campaign, LAMP built a new wing to house expanding programmes and services in 1986.
Fire devastated LAMP in December 1989, resulting in all services and programmes finding alternate spaces throughout the Lakeshore Area. Nearly two years later, October 1991, LAMP officially re-opened its doors at 185 Fifth Street.
In 1996, our 20th Anniversary Celebrations included planning another physical expansion in order to provide space for The Family Centre, Street Level Youth Drop In and Occupational Health.
In June 1997, an official ground breaking ceremony was held in celebration of the beginning of a new addition. The programs moved in January and an open house for members and the community was held in March, 1999.
LAMP now provides a wide range of health and community services.
