At United Way Toronto, we talk a lot about possibility. Possibility for individuals. For families. For communities. For our entire city. But, in this video, we explore what you—people in the community—think. It all starts with a simple question: “What does possibility mean to you?”
Watch videos highlighting the opening of Community Hubs being built through the work of United Way Toronto. In partnership with the province, private funders and key agency partners, United Way Toronto is seeding development of eight Community Hubs in priority neighbourhoods. The Hubs will bring people in communities together, connect them to the services they need, foster the development of resident organizations and grassroots groups, and grow volunteer leadership.
Poverty by Postal Code 2: Vertical Poverty presents new data on the growing concentration of poverty in the City of Toronto and the role that high-rise housing is playing in this trend. The report tracks the continued growth in the spatial concentration of poverty in Toronto neighbourhoods, and in high-rise buildings within neighbourhoods. It then examines the quality of life that high-rise buildings are providing to tenants today. Its primary focus is on privately owned building stock in Toronto's inner suburbs. This research is part of United Way's Building Strong Neighbourhoods Strategy.
