From Poverty to Possibility
There's an issue
For too many Canadians across the country, poverty is a daily and difficult struggle. It forces people and families to make impossible choices like wether to put food on the table or to pay the rent. It touches every aspect of a peron’s life, making it difficult to get ahead and realize a future full of possibility.
