I am Ana Carrasco, currently working as the Community Liaison and communication Coordinator of a Hotel (Comfort-in) shelter program at 445 Rexdale Blvd, Etobicoke, run by the Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre (CONC).
CONC is a multi-service agency in Toronto providing essential and innovative services for vulnerable community members. We provide accessible programs, services and support for children, youth, adults and seniors living in poverty, including community members who are newcomers, sole-support parents, challenged by mental and physical health issues, lacking food and income security, homeless, under-housed, and experiencing other barriers to living healthy lives and participating fully in community.
The Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre is dedicated to building upon the strengths and vision of community members to improve the quality of life in the Christie Ossington community and surrounding neighbourhoods. We will create a safe and healthy community by collaborating with residents, community institutions, agencies, local businesses, and stakeholders.
