Networking and Building
Strong Relationships with Community Organizations
We believe in strong co-operative
relationships with other service providers and community organizations.
We participate in several inter-agency groups. We meet several times a
year with Social Service Departments and the Ministry of Community and
Social Services in an effort to build healthy working relationships and
resolve conflict and issues, where they exist, expeditiously and creatively.
We participate in brown bag service provider luncheons and sit on service
coordination committees. We work collaboratively with
others on issues like domestic violence, access to health care,
homelessness, and the need for affordable housing.
We provide legal information sessions for staff development.
with low income groups or individuals or members of disadvantaged
communities to assist them to build viable community organizations.
Examples of groups we initially helped to start include several tenants
associations, the Quinte & District Injured Workers Group and the Tenant
Action Group. We can provide meeting space and start up assistance and
other supports. Our goal is to create self-sufficient local
grass-roots groups that can advocate for their own interests.
