A welcoming community of families supporting each other through diverse programs and resources to build friendships, strengthen our children, and create healthy neighbourhoods.
We are a community based agency that began 11 years ago with 6 women meeting together as Oak Park Moms and Tots and last year served 503 families/700 children at our Neighbourhood Centre.
This year we have changed our name to Oak Park Neighbourhood Centre to better reflect the various programs we provide.
We have created an inviting, non-institutional, barrier free space that is a reflection of the needs, talents and gifts of our neighbours and friends so that it is relevant to the whole community.
Our Objectives are:
To relieve poverty by providing basic amenities including food, education, counselling and clothing to families in need.
To Provide parenting education and support
To provide educational, recreational, and social opportunities for parents and children of all abilities
PLEASE COME AND JOIN US AT ANY OF OUR DROP IN PROGRAMS. You do not need to pre-register and you are welcome at any time.
We run infant, toddler, preschool and school-age programs. We also provide affordable dance, karate and preschool classes with free spaces for families in need. We provide free or affordable space to a number of local agencies and businesses to run family programming.
Our programs would not be possible with out the amazing volunteers and staff who contribute their gifts, expertise, passion, time and talent to the centre.
