Our Anti-Poverty work builds on our perspective that everyone has the right to the financial means to provide for a decent quality of life.
Week after week, we see the effects of extreme poverty on many people who come to Project Genesis for services. We believe that no one should be forced to live in poverty, least of all in a society as rich as our own.
We work to overcome the root causes of poverty in our community through community mobilization, awareness campaigns, interactions with public officials, and coalition work.
Our Anti-Poverty Committee (APC) is made up of local residents who bring their passion and experience to this issue.
The Dignity Support Action Group is made up of individuals whose personal experiences with welfare have inspired them to take collective action against poverty.
In order to be more accessible to all, public transit should be available at a reduced rate to low-income households.
