Social Inclusion

Social inclusion means feeling welcomed by your community and being active and engaged in it. By identifying and removing barriers, we build on our assets to strengthen inclusion.

Integrating access to basic needs, services, activities, and groups, we create the conditions for everyone to reach their full potential.

The CRCC seeks to build inclusion for everyone. Our friend Ian demonstrates the concept perfectly.
