 A thriving community is one where people feel supported and connected; it's a place where everyone has the chance to live with dignity, find joy, and succeed. When we help people support themselves, we lift up our entire community.

 

You helped secure funding for the Comox Valley Community Action Team to hire an outreach coordinator to engage with peers and stakeholders to help address the opioid crisis. Because of you, those impacted by substance use issues are getting help.

The Connect Warming Centre, in partnership with the Comox Valley Coalition to End Homelessness, offered a warm, dry, safe place for people facing or experiencing homelessness in the Comox Valley throughout the winter months.

You supported a food security event where federal campaign leaders (Courtenay-Alberni and North Island-Powell River ridings) presented. Attendees learned about party platforms regarding sustainability, localization of food sources and food security measures for people living in poverty. Because of you, people were able to make educated decisions at the polls and positively impact those living in poverty.
