WKNC and OTF
During 2005-2007 OTF funded WKNC to increase sustainability and effectiveness of the organization and programs. This enabled WKNC to hire a program coordinator for two years.
In spring 2008 OTF provided WKNC with funding to install air conditioning in the drop-in centre, providing a cool place for people to escape the heat of the summer.
In 2008 WKNC was awarded an Ontario Trillium Grant which spanned two years. This funding allowed WKNC to have a full-time Volunteer / Food Co-ordinator who was able to organize the volunteers around the delivery of our food security program.
In 2013 The Ontario Trillium Foundation's (OTF) funding allowed WKNC to hire our
first Executive Director to expand our current programs, partnerships and diversify our funding
