From social distance to community resilience. Responding to changing times.

Bringing people together is a big part of what we do at the Ottawa Community Foundation. Knowledge sharing through in-person convening—a traditional value of community foundations—is presently not possible. It’s clear that we all play a part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. We are doing our part to flatten the curve by practising strict physical distancing and helping those around us to manage disruption and uncertainty. 

We also recognize that this physical distancing can lead to social isolation and that the effects of this are felt most by vulnerable populations and the frontline workers that are at the core of the social sector. 

While we cannot control this new reality, we can come together to respond.
