A story about how marginalized community members find livelihoods with meaning by joining Aangen to help others in need.

By Aaron D’Andrea

Csaba Lukac came to Canada two-and-a-half months ago as a refugee from Slovakia and was searching for work when he found Aangen Community Centre.

“They (Aangen) helped me, so I’m helping other people,” he said inside the non-profit’s location on Dovercourt Road near Bloor Street West. “I got help, so I give help to other people and I like it. It’s a good feeling.”

He’s one of several marginalized workers who cook and serve food for Toronto’s homeless at the Better Living Centre respite shelter at Exhibition Place.
