Carizon Launches New Tagline

Carizon Launches New Tagline

Carizon Family and Community Services has launched a new tagline – “Inspiring Hope and Wellness in Our Community.”

Since a 2013 amalgamation process that resulted in the formation of Carizon, many have asked, “what exactly does Carizon do?” As a multi-service organization that provides therapeutic, supportive and preventative programs, this question doesn’t summon a simple answer. By establishing a tagline,

Carizon hopes to spark further conversation about how we inspire hope and wellness in our community.

The Carizon tagline came out of an engagement process with stakeholders, including staff, Board and community members.

So why this tagline?

  • The tagline includes words from the Carizon vision: Hope, Wellness, Community.
  • The word “Inspiring” adds an action that reflects how Carizon works alongside people to help them find the strength, skills and resilience to achieve wellness.
  • The tagline also highlights “Our Community” expressing Carizon’s commitment to serving our neighbours in this Region.
