About:

WCWRC exists to empower women to help themselves, their families and their community to safer, healthier lifestyles. While much of our work is designed for women in the West Central Neighbourhood, they also offer programming and services to children and men in the community and women in neighbouring communities. Included in WCWRC programming is the HOMES Project (Housing Options, Mentorship and Economic Security) - created to given women support when dealing with problems or concerns around housing or income security (welfare or employment assistance).

Other Info:

The HOMES Project (Housing Options, Mentorship and Economic Security) has been created to given women support when dealing with problems or concerns around housing or income security (welfare or employment assistance). The Community Mentor and trained volunteers offer one-on-one help to: address conflicts effectively; and provide information and access to other programs in education, child care, employment, health and safety. One of the goals of the program is to given women the chance to come together and support each other in overcoming poverty and homelessness. A monthly discussion group allows that to happen. There are also workshops and information sessions, open to all, based on topics that come out of the discussion group.
