Community Voices

Your voice matters. Share your ideas. End poverty together.

We're looking! 

We are looking for individuals that have lived experience with the many challenges of poverty, and want to use their voice to help others and reduce poverty in Chatham-Kent through advocacy, awareness, and action.

Your voice and experiences matters and we want to hear it. Your experiences, along with your heart and hands, are what you can bring to the group. 

This group is a great opportunity for you to meet and connect with new people, learn some new skills, grow your volunteer experience, and most importantly help others in our community.
