Who We Are
WKNC provides essential support for some of the most marginalized & vulnerable people in our community
We have been serving Weston and Mount Dennis since 2001. As a non-profit community centre with locations in the heart of the Weston and Mount Dennis communities, WKNC has been serving and supporting residents with the support they need. We are a grassroots organization that offers both frontlines and developmental services to our community. Please see the "Our Locations" page for more details on specific services.
We believe all people deserve a safe, comfortable space where they can be Recognized, Acknowledged, Encouraged, and Empowered.
Our mission is to provide a response to the people within our community who are coping with economic or social barriers and to help lessen the impact of those barriers and the burden of poverty for the communities of Weston and Mount Dennis.
We envision a community where diversity is respected and supported to enhance individual and community capacity.
WKNC seeks to fulfill its mission by establishing and operating programs and services by using a participant-centered philosophy with a focus on harm reduction, food security, and housing. We are dedicated to ensuring an inclusive, barrier-free environment using best practices and sector standards.
