Community Organizations

Amberwood Village

We are a diverse community of more than 400 households—young families, grandparents and singles of all ages. We jointly own and support the 50-acre golf course/green space that is the heart of our neighbourhood and its amenities that help keep our community engaged and healthy. This includes a pool, racket courts, golf course, and cross country skiing in the winter months. We want to share these resources with neighbours in the Stittsville/Richmond/Kanata area. We’re working to be a vibrant year-round lifestyle destination and community activity centre that is welcoming, accessible and affordable. We offer a gathering place where guests can relax, enjoy sports, recreation and food, or book a private function to mark one of life’s events. We are some 39 years young and on the way to becoming a ‘go-to place’ for the people of Stittsville, Richmond, Kanata and beyond.

Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre

It can be hard to know which services are available for you or your family in the community. As a family navigator, my role is to help you navigate the social service system, and get connected to resources that meet your family’s needs. I can support your family by: helping to identify your family’s needs, establishing goals, creating a short term service plan, and providing referrals. Family navigation is a free, bilingual service, serving children and families in the West end of Ottawa.

Hospice Care Ottawa logo

Hospice Care Ottawa is a community-based charitable, non-profit organization. We offer palliative and end-of-life care, at no charge, to individuals and their loved ones.

At Hospice Care Ottawa we support individuals and their caregivers during their entire illness, from the time of diagnosis through to death and bereavement. Programs are provided at our hospice sites across the City of Ottawa and within the community. Delivery of services is made possible through the support of a small dedicated staff, many volunteers and generous donors.

Community Hospice Care programs include Day Hospice, In-Home Support as well as Caregiver and Bereavement Supports.

Residential Hospice Care provides round the clock care for people at the end-of-life, in a home-like and peaceful setting.

Do you or someone you know have a palliative or life-limiting illness? We can help. To make a referral to one of our Community Hospice Care programs call 613-680-0306. A Community Hospice Care nurse will connect with you to assess and discuss how we can best provide support.

R.E.A.C.H- Recreation Empowering Active Community Helpers

R.E.A.C.H- Recreation Empowering Active Community Helpers is a youth initiative under our Youth Connexion program with the City of Ottawa.
Our goals are to provide a safe and fun environment for students to complete their 40 hours of community involvement while becoming active members of their community. We are aiming to help students make a difference in their community by providing events and activities for their peers and other age groups to engage all youth and make them active, respected members of their community.

Students will meet with their Youth Mentors weekly. During each meeting they will brainstorm how to get involved in their community by researching events to participate in, finding what youth are interested in, and more! Not only will students earn their hours doing something fun, they will be making a positive change benefitting youth in their area while developing the necessary skills to become an active member of their community.

R.E.A.C.H gives students a voice- we want to hear YOURS!
