Open Space is a weekly gathering that promotes inclusion within the community by getting people together at a cafe for food, fun and conversation.

In addition to weekly coffee and conversation, with the support of facilitators, attendees plan special events such as Halloween parties, and Open Mic Nights.  All are welcome regardless of ability, and you do not need to be supported by Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region to attend.
