Thanks to all of you who joined us on March 30th for the launch

of Creating Community. We are deeply grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for investing in this three-year project.

With the OTF funding, the Poverty Roundtable of Hastings and Prince Edward Counties (PRT) and the Community Development Council of Quinte will bring together people from all sectors to change the way our community thinks about and responds to poverty. Here is a link to one article about the project launch. More information on Creating Community will follow in the coming weeks.

The next Poverty Roundtable meeting will be held:

Wednesday, September 28th
2:00 – 4:00 pm
Location: TBA

Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice.  Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.  Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great.  YOU can be that great generation.  Let your greatness blossom.”
