Niagara, Ontario – The Willow Community Support Services may be a new kid in town (specifically St. Catharines, Ontario) but the organization knows how to make a distinct difference in quick time. In just 2 years, Executive Director Shauna MacLeod’s plan to provide recreation and creative services to Niagara residents with mental health and addiction diagnoses has developed into a vibrant community service.

TWCSS has even attracted recognition and support from the well-established Workman Arts in Toronto, providing professional guidance and the opportunity for future funding.

The Willow Community Support Services is a non profit dedicated to offer safe and friendly spaces for its members, age 18 and over, with free activities that include regular family friendly games nights and monthly creativity-themed workshops at Rodman Hall and various venues in St. Catharines.

If you make an appointment to chat with Shauna in the TWCSS office on-site at Rodman Hall, take a moment to enjoy spring’s arrival on the elegant grounds that skirt Twelve Mile Creek.  The location is so welcoming to all art lovers, and naturally complements the needs of persons in their health recovery.

For more information about the organization, please contact: Shauna at 905-328-9277  shauna@thewillowcommunity.ca and visit TWCSS sites on -line: www.facebook.com/thewillowcommunity/  and/or www.thewillowcommunitysupportservices.com

As spring arrives, The Willow Community Support Services is ready to grow and establish stronger roots. For a rockin’ good time, TWCSS invites you to its first fundraiser —  ‘80’s Dance Party’ Fundraiser features live music with The Throwbacks, amazing prizes, a silent auction and costume competition, ‘Draw Your Neighbour’- the world’s longest drawing by a community, food and cash bar. Be prepared to get your groove on—for a very good cause.
