Vision, Mission, Values
Together we seek to build a safe, just and healthy community for all.
Pinecrest-Queensway Community Health Centre is an innovative community based, multi-service centre. We strive to meet the needs of the diverse communities we serve. We work in partnership with individuals, families and communities to achieve their full health potential, paying particular attention to those facing barriers to access, including those who are most vulnerable and at risk.
We strive to provide accessible and appropriate programs and services for our clients and communities recognizing that access can be limited by financial, physical, cultural and other systemic barriers.
Client and Community-Centre Approach
We encourage and support client and community participation in the work that we do. We support individuals, families and communities to make decisions on issues that matter to them and achieve their goals by building on their assets and skills.
Collaboration and Integration
We foster collaboration and integration with our clients, communities and our partner agencies.
We respect and celebrate the uniqueness, potential and ability of each individual; we demonstrate fairness and compassion in our interactions with others. We believe that diversity enriches the community in which we live and work.
We are committed to understanding and minimizing our environmental impact in all that we do.
We are committed to all people fulfilling their right to conditions and resources that contribute to health and well-being. These conditions and resources include peace, shelter, education, food, income, social justice and access to health services.
We are accountable to our clients, the community, our colleagues and other stakeholders for providing high quality and effective programs and services. Honesty, openness, transparency and professionalism are the hallmarks of the way we work.
We take pride in learning and excellence and strive to be leaders in all aspects of our work.
