recLINK is a system navigation and service coordination Initiative led by the Ottawa Community Housing (OCH) Foundation. recLINK aims to reach vulnerable, disengaged children and youth living in OCH neighbourhoods who are not reached by traditional service delivery models, and connects them to the arts, sports and camp programs they are passionate about.

recLINK is delivered by a small team who act as the central point of contact for families and partner organizations. recLINK staff help families learn to navigate the recreation registration and subsidy systems, overcome barriers to participation, and link young people to programs that meet their interests and needs. The recLINK model aims to affect change on three levels: individual, community and system through various interventions. For more information on the recLINK Model, please contact
