Mission & Vision
Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre provides integrated, accessible health and community services for individuals and families in our community who experience social and economic barriers, to ignite change, improves lives, and strengthen community.
Ignite Change. Improve Lives. Strengthen Community.
Well-being: We believe that everyone has the right to the basic conditions that make good health possible and enable them to live to their full potential. To that end we employ skilled and empathetic staff. We also create deep integration with our community partners and across our programs.
Empowerment: We believe that people can improve their lives and their neighbourhoods. To support this we prioritize a community focus in our planning and build the strength of local residents to become community champions and drive positive change.
Equity: We challenge systemic inequities that some individuals and groups face in our community. We do this by maintaining an equity approach to service delivery and by employing a strong client-centred focus in our work.
Diversity: We support, celebrate and embrace diversity as an integral part of our work. We promote equal opportunity in all the services we provide.
Accessibility: We strive to create a welcoming, inclusive, safe, supportive, and accessible space for everyone. To do this we function as a multi-service hub for the community and provide systems navigation support to our clients.
