Aperçu

The PARC Board of Directors is hosting their first annual holiday feast to raise funds for PARC's meal program.

Of the 15,000 adults living in South Parkdale one third are unemployed, on social assistance or low income; half are living in unaffordable housing; almost two thirds are living in single person households; many living in isolation are elderly and many live with mental health and drug use challenges.

It is the PARC promise of a hot meal that first brings many people through PARC’s doors. PARC meals do stretch people's limited incomes; they do provide an opportunity to socialize and make a friend and they are at times the catalyst for so many more positive changes in people's lives.

What makes donating to PARC at this time of year so important is simple: food. Food brings people together. Food brings people through our doors at 1499 Queen St. W. And food is the starting point for building an inclusive community that welcomes everyone right here in the heart of Parkdale.

This is why the PARC Board of Directors invites you to come to our first annual holiday feast

À propos de cet organisme

Since 1977, PARC has grown from a room with a stove and two volunteers into a lighthouse in Parkdale—a beacon that signals affordable and supportive housing, peer-support, and wellness programming. Each year: • Our drop-in center serves over 1100 members. • Our Peer Outreach Program advocates for 1200 members. • Our Supportive Housing provides a secure home to over 40 tenants. • Our Case Management Outreach Program connects with over 100 members. • Our organizational structure creates supportive employment opportunities for over 120 members. PARC’s model is unique. We use a recovery-orientated approach, one that is predicated on, and celebrates, psychiatric consumer/survivor participation in all levels of the organization. Members comprise half of PARC’s Board of Directors. Members are represented in our Drop-in and Outreach teams, and a high percentage of our staff identity as having lived experience with mental health and addiction issues.
