Community Care of West Niagara has been involved in the local poverty conversation for many years. CCWN is a registered charitable non-profit organization that has been serving West Niagara since 1967. Our founder, Doreen Hutchinson, identified a need to assist local residents with their food and clothing necessities and was awarded the Queen’s Jubilee in 2012 for her dedication.
Our Mission is to provide a bridge between dependency and self-sufficiency for people to support themselves and their families with dignity and purpose. The clients we serve come from all walks of life and have experienced financial difficulties due to job loss, illness or other hardships. As our clients are spending an exceptionally high proportion of their income on housing, the cost of healthy eating is becoming increasingly out of reach for many.
