We offer local adults weekly programming in the supportive and welcoming environment of MSCRC.
Meet & Eat Community Connect
A weekly get-together on Thursday afternoons from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. We make crafts, play games, have coffee, eat great snacks and get to know each other. Occasional planned activities and events will be announced with flyers. Childminding is available.
Clothing Depot & Household Items
This is our community-run clothing donation program located in MSCRC’s basement. Residents are welcome to come by and browse seasonal clothing in all sizes. We also offer household goods such as cookware and linen.
Harvest Food Donation Program
Our bi-weekly food donation program is held on Tuesday afternoons at MSCRC from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm. All participants must be registered through Winnipeg Harvest to participate - call (204)982-3660 or email: email@example.com; have your Manitoba Health Card number ready.
Newcomer Women Drop-in
This is a bi-weekly drop-in every alternate Wednesdays from 5:15 pm to 7:15 pm. The program offers an opportunity to our newcomer women to meet other newcomers and share their experiences about lives in Canadian, practice English, gain information on available resources while partaking in recreational activities and arts & craft skills.
Men’s Outreach & Support
Our Centre recognizes the unique needs and life issues of our local men. In 2017, we introduced a new MSCRC staff position – Community Coordinator (Male Programs/Outreach). Our aim is to encourage local men to become more actively involved in MSCRC, while addressing their concerns, assisting in skill building and helping them reach their goals.
Professional Development & Skill-Building
Regular classes to learn basic computer skills and cooking healthy meals. Periodically, we offer employment, food & nutrition training and parenting programs. Recently, we have started a bi-weekly English Conversational coffee group for our newcomer population. To assist our community members better, on-site child care and snacks are provided.
At the Centre, community members are welcome to access to computer, copier, fax and scan machine. Additionally, we provide regular support to individuals seeking assistance in writing resumes and cover letters.
Each year, we hold free income tax clinics to complete simple income tax (filing) for persons on low income. The program is offered on specific dates starting from March 1 to April 30 annually.
To meet our community needs, we have some emergency food, bus tickets, feminine hygiene and safe sex products available (upon availability). Please contact our Centre staff for information.
