JCTS Programs & Projects

Caring Community Fund

The Caring Community Fund (CCF) is a fund of last resort to help clients of Community Outreach Services overcome small but significant barriers to their well being. To access the fund, recipients must be connected to a COS Outreach Worker and the request must be approved by the COS Manager.

Within the CCF, there are subcategories:

  • Mental Health Crisis Fund
  • Disaster Social Services Fund
  • Child & Youth Participation Fund

The CCF has been utilized to address a variety of different barriers. As an example, the Caring Community Fund was used to purchase steel-toe boots, allowing a community member who couldn’t afford to purchase their own to start a new career and be better able to support their family.
