The Working Centre is made up of people who work cooperatively on projects that seek to make our community a better place.
A multitude of projects weave together to form a hub of activity. 400 volunteers work within over 30 different community building projects. 3,500 different people per year use our Job Search Resource Centre. Every month over 10,000 people use Working Centre services and projects. St. John’s Kitchen serves a hot, lunch-time meal each weekday to 300 people.
This community of support includes 28 units of transitional housing; a Hospitality House for those who are ill and without shelter; a housing desk; Recycle Cycles Community Bike Shop; and community gardens. Our thrift store Worth a Second Look is a lively furniture and housewares recycling centre. Many new projects are emerging from this active community, including the Hacienda Sarria Market Garden, the K-W Bike Sharing Project, and an affordable dental clinic for people living on a limited income.
Your donations to The Working Centre support these innovative and adaptable projects as we respond to emergent community needs.
