PARC Housing: Collaborative Care

Homelessness is incredibly challenging and often leads to mental health concerns. While providing a home is essential, it doesn't address the many challenges individuals face after years of being on the streets. One of the most crucial aspects of providing housing is offering wrap-around services that support the individual's overall well-being.

Invest in women: Accelerate progress

#IWD 2024

March 8th, is International Women's Day 2024! As we celebrated the remarkable contributions of women in every field, we focused on the theme of the day: "Invest in women: Accelerate progress." When we invest in women, we not only accelerate progress but also pave the way towards a brighter, more equitable future for all.

Here at PARC, we are committed to investing in and promoting the inclusion of women at all levels of the organization.

The 2024 Parkdale Community Planning Study!

Parkdale People's Economy is launching our much-anticipated Parkdale Community Planning Study. We cannot wait to set in motion this community plan for Parkdale, created through sustained community-led visioning, strategizing, and organizing to dream of a future where displacement is not inevitable, and instead, the people of Parkdale can unite and build collective power.

Save the date for Saturday, April 27, and join us for the Launch.
