NorWest Co-op Community Centre
With a dignified street presence, and located on a main avenue with great bus access and parking, the NorWest Community Centre facility will bring together much-loved and well-used programs and services, which are all currently hosted at several smaller locations. These include everything from community BBQs, health fairs, job fairs, art shows, youth forums, cooking classes and gardening groups, to primary health care appointments, counselling sessions and employment supports.
The centre will be a one-stop shop for a wide variety of health and social services, while also serving as a true hub for the community. A new multipurpose room will also allow community groups to use the space for events and workshops.
The greenspace will provide a safe space where youth and families can relax and recharge. It will feature garden boxes where people can grow vegetables, which will be used in meals cooked in our community kitchen. It will also offer a safe, quiet space for counselling for youth and families.
