CONC gave me a sense of community and support to achieve my education goals. The staffs were are always more than happy to assist me with my homework as English is not my first language and provided bus tokens for me to go school. With their support I graduated from college in August 2015 with a diploma in Project Administration and will now be pursuing a higher education at the University of Toronto.

During the most difficult times of my life I was welcomed at CONC. I was provided with food and a safe environment as I look for housing and work. An appointment was scheduled to meet with staff from various programs to help access and determine my needs so that I can begin to get my life back together. Without their support this journey would have been much more difficult on my own.

When I first came to CONC I was at my lowest, I had lost everything and had no hope. Working with the Housing Team has been the best thing for me, they helped me to find housing and then I was able to find a job. I am very happy to have met the workers at CONC as they have helped me rebuild my life again.
