Syme Woolner Neighbourhood & Family Centre
Syme Woolner Neighbourhood & Family Centre is a community based organization, working with diverse communities to build self-sufficiency and enhance quality of life. We do this in collaboration with partners by providing a range of programs and services that foster social inclusion, facilitate growth and development, and offer real solutions.
Syme Woolner supports and engages our community members from childhood through adolescence and adulthood. Parents and children enjoy the Family Resource Centre located inside George Syme Community School. The centre runs a daily program, licensed childcare, After-School and children’s breakfast and lunch programs in several schools. Women’s groups and Spanish, Somali, Punjabi/Urdu, Vietnamese programs are also run at the centre and neighbouring locations. Youth are engaged in a weekly drop-in night at our Eglinton West Drop-In and through a weeknight recreational program known as ‘The Rock’ at Rockcliffe Middle School. Syme Woolner operates Eglinton West Drop-In and Jane’s Place Drop-In to support the housing, income, food security and emergency crisis needs of adult members of our community. As a complement and extension of our drop-in centres, we provide services for vulnerable adults such as Homeless Outreach, Harm Reduction, HIV Prevention, and Injection Drug User Outreach.
