The Kingston Community House (or “99 York”) is a not-for-profit organization providing safe, comfortable, and inclusive meeting spaces for community groups and individuals. For 40 years the house has served as a gathering point for folks to come together, learn from another, share resources, and trade skills. The house is open to members seven days a week, 365 days a year. We are located on the unceded territory of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat.
99 York is founded on the belief that everyone has the capacity to take responsibility for themselves given the proper tools and encouragement. A typical day at at the house may include a cooking class, a meditation group, and a film screening. Or, an art class, a book club, and a 12-step program.
The goal of the house is ultimately to serve those who value the importance of working together for a more interconnected and self-reliant lifestyle, based not on consumer goods, but on enriching relationships and communities.
