Shahzad’s involvement with the Centre began when she brought her two young children to the Tiny Tots program that was being offered in the building where she lived. Her unwavering commitment and involvement in the program attracted the attention of the staff, and when a position for Childcare worker became available in 2001, she was successful in her application.
Since then Shahzad has been an integral member of staff and well-known for her involvement in many of the programs that the Centre offers. Over the past 15 years she has referred numerous persons including members of her own family to the programs and services of the Centre. She lauds the Centre for its continued work in helping to uplift the members of the Jane Finch community.
