The need for low cost extra curricular programming and support to children, families and those new to Canada is a reality in the city’s west end. The West End COC supports a large number of children, families and individuals that benefit from skill building and social cohesion.

I support the efforts of the West End Outreach Centre. I wholly believe in the merit of providing children and families with community based positive opportunities, mentorship and supports in a safe and caring environment. An outreach centre that meets the needs and supports lower income families and their children is a great benefit to the community. This is a way to address many of the root causes of crime and build individual community and resiliency.

Brightview School has been fortunate to have “Kids of Promise” as a community partner for the past 20 years. Having a creative arts academy in our community provides important opportunities for our socially vulnerable children. It is truly a pleasure to support the West End OC.

As a Program Coordinator for the Edmonton Immigration Services Association, I am really pleased to endorse the expansion of the West End Outreach Centre.
