Ottawa Community Support Coalition

The Ottawa Community Support Coalition (OCSC) consists of 20 organizations mandated to provide home-based community support services to seniors and adults with physical disabilities. These agencies provide an efficient, accountable, consistent and coordinated range of community support services designed to meet the needs of individuals living in their community. The range of services offered by these agencies includes Meals on Wheels, Diners Club, Transportation, Friendly Home Visiting, Caregiver Support, Foot Care and Homemaking, just to name a few. Please use the menu to the left of the page to find out more about the OCSC, to read about all of our services, or to view our latest news and events. We also encourage you to peruse the many volunteer opportunities with community support agencies in the Ottawa area. And don't forget to take advantage of the useful related links on the Web.
