A Message From KNC Manager Colette Baron
My vision for the centre is to be a place where people can connect, create, learn and seek support.
Our purpose is to be the heart and hub of our community by providing a safe environment and opportunities, where the community can come together.
We provide programs, advocacy, information and referrals for our community.
Why do you volunteer at Kincumber Neighbourhood Centre?
