Program Testimonials

“I came to ECRC because I was experiencing heightened stress, anxiety and was going through a separation… I had counselling [with my children] and felt peace, and gained coping mechanisms. Without the centre, life is very hard for us. Now I am happy and strong.”

Lora
Newcomer Settlement Program

“I’ve been attending homework club for 2-months, organized by ECRC. Homework club is very friendly, they give you food [to eat] and there’s open gym, too. And if you need help, they’ll help you, that’s for sure! One more thing– I’ve made friends just by being here.”
