To advance it's vision and the work of TNC member agencies, the TNC Association:
- Identifies and
speaks out on common issues and concerns in our communities as an
association and in cooperation with other community groups;
the model of universal access multi-service Neighbourhood Centres
as a core component of healthy communities (complementing strong public
services and a well-supported network of organizations and services
targeted to diverse communities and sectors)
- Encourages the
development of Neighbourhood Centres in under-served communities across
Neighbourhood Centres across Toronto, serving as a medium for the
exchange of information and ideas, and sharing organizational resources
- Sponsors inter-agency
projects with member agencies and other organizations;
- Promotes best practices for community-based social service, health and recreation activities.
TNC is a registered charitable organization and a member of the Canadian Association of Neighbourhood Services (CANS), and the International Federation of Settlements and Neighbourhood Centres (IFS).
