The Jane/Finch Community and Family Centre is a multi-service, community-based organization working to reduce poverty through resident engagement, capacity building and anti-oppression. The Centre builds health and well-being in the Jane and Finch community through programs focused on children, youth, seniors, mental health, newcomer settlement and financial empowerment. Its youth program which runs out of Westgate Mall has considerable credibility among local youth, having been in place for many years. The program empowers and inclusively engages youth to support the governance of the space and activities, giving youth partial ownership of program spaces and authority of programs offered.
This is an outstanding city.
