By the community, with the community.
This is not a fact-finding mission. We don't have an agenda. We want this report to be a community-driven collaboration. With the support of the University of Windsor, the report will be designed and completed alongside community member acting in a researcher capacity.
Our hope is to see our community learn and grow together to better understand the daily challenges of poverty, how people are surviving, what needs to change now, and what needs to stay the same. Let's work together to end poverty.
This report is not about the statistics. We are looking to step beyond the numbers to better understand what the daily struggles are like, and what needs to change for you to have a better life and thrive in Chatham-Kent.
This report is an act of reconciliation. Your stories and experiences are important, and need to be heard. Change needs to be made in Chatham-Kent, and your voice will help get us one step closer.
