The Parkdale Meeting Place Drop-In provides a welcoming place for men and women who are homeless and marginally housed in the Parkdale community. The goal of the Parkdale Meeting Place is to provide a safe and friendly environment where socially isolated members of the community can meet, socialize and access needed supports.
The Meeting Place at Queen and Bathurst has the main goal of lowering social isolation. We work to increase access to income through advocacy, public education and skills development. Using a community development approach, the Meeting Place staff and members work together to remove problems that keep people from accessing housing and income. Staff and members also work to create a community space that offers safety, security and access to basic needs.
West Neighbourhood House is part of PARC’s Peer Support Program Partnership. Check out these videos to learn more about the impact of peer support workers in our community.
