Who We Are

Connect Care Ottawa is a new initiative that works with local churches to create a community of care for Ottawa’s at-risk children.

We network and collaborate with agencies, non-profits, businesses, professionals and churches to equip them to step in and offer help in the form of prevention, intervention and restoration.

In this way struggling families will be able to access the resources they need in a difficult situation.

Our Team

The mandate of Connect Care Ottawa is to connect churches to meaningful relationships within their community, equip them to establish a culture of care, and mobilize them to take effective action. We believe families are the best supports for vulnerable children and churches are the best supports for families.
