Parkdale Newcomers Service Providers Network

This coalition is working towards decreasing the gap seen in the community between the various service providers. There was a need to bring together front line workers (settlement workers) for the purpose of capacity building and providing quality services to Newcomers in Parkdale.

As a group we aim to contribute with information sharing, networking, referrals and partnership/collaboration including:

  • Create joint programs/activities i.e. one stop shopping services in buildings that are highly populated with newcomers.
  • Establish a support group for people who experienced trauma in their homelands.
  • Create more access to our programs
  • Sharing resources
  • Advocacy
  • Provide support letters for funding reasons

Whenever possible, the “One Stop Shop “events are delivered through the community and all year round. Previous events included: Flu Clinics, Diabetes Education, Blood Pressure checks, etc.
