At Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre, we provide a range of health, community and social services. Core services include primary care, mental health, child services, multi-cultural programs and community development activities. We are located in the west-end of Ottawa and serves a catchment area characterized by significant cultural, racial and religious diversity. The volunteer program has been in existence since 1996, and has over 480 volunteers registered(59% are New Canadians). A community development, capacity building, and peopled cultured philosophy helps to guide and structure the program by supporting community members in authentic volunteer opportunities.
