History of Milton Community Resource Centre
MCRC is the amalgamation of two agencies in Milton: Milton Community and Information Services and Milton Children and Youth Centre . In 1998, the two agencies became one. At that time there were about 12 staff, an operating budget of $400,000 and 200 families.
In 2002, MCRC was selected to be the lead agency for the new Ontario government initiative- Ontario Early Years Centres. At that time the staff grew to 20, the operating budget grew to $1,500,000 and our membership grew to 700 families.
In 2003, MCRC expanded their school age programs to include Chris Hadfield Before and After School program and in 2005 Hawthorne Village School was added.
In 2006, MCRC expanded to the new Bronte Corporate Centre at 400 Bronte Street in Milton. The building is 21,500 square feet which includes a Child Care Centre, Early Years programs, School age programs, Nursery School programs, Private Home Child Care Program and Family Resource Programs.
Milton Community Resource Centre is a multiservice organization committed to strengthening its partnerships, lending expertise and creativity to coordinate and provide quality programs and services which reflect the diversity of the needs of our community. To this end MCRC strives to encourage the well being of children and their families thus strengthening the growing community of Milton.
Poem for the future
May our spring gardens flourish
May love old and new develop
May children blossom
May each of us find a balance
Between work and play
May we be fulfilled by our work
And nurtured by our play
May we hold sacred the earth
And our bodies
We will mourn many times
Sorrow strengthens us
Sharpens our awareness of life
We rise each morning with joy
We stand in this doorway with hope
