Valerie Moreton
St Vincents Kitchen Building Project.

Valerie was first involved with Durham Outlook when she volunteered as a high school student. Following high school Valerie developed a strong sense of devotion for the non-profit sector while taking Justice & Criminology at Ontario Tech University. Through her many experiences at Durham Outlook Valerie has developed a deep appreciation on how non-profits seek to improve the quality of life for Durham Region, one program at a time. “We are lucky to work at a place surrounded by volunteers who bring ideas, positive energy, and a beautiful intensity every day.”

Our building at 51 King St East in Oshawa has been our home since the beginning but we have outgrown it. It is

an old building that does not meet accessibility standards, has no parking facilities, has outdated equipment, and is in constant need of costly repairs. Durham Outlook has purchased land and plans for a new building at 227 Simcoe St South in Oshawa. Our new building will be a modern, fully accessible facility that can accommodate our kitchen, store, boardroom and offices. The dining room will be larger in order to feed the increasing number of patrons we are seeing year after year.
