Description (Agency) As of 2019, the WECCC movement includes nearly 1500 individuals and 50+ organizations working together to improve quality of life for residents across Windsor and Essex County. This includes community groups , health service providers across all sectors, the education sector and individuals who simply want to make a difference.

Working across community to address loneliness and isolation through building resilient neighbourhoods 
Connecting our most vulnerable with community – including people who are homeless or living with low income who are dealing with health or life challenges 
Building a community system to support people and caregivers dealing with serious illness, death, dying, loss and bereavement 
Making it normal to talk about future wishes and advanced care planning
