Marvyn is returning for the next phase of the 25 in 5 Network campaign to present a “Blueprint” on how we can reduce poverty in Ontario by 25% in 5 years. Join us to learn more about the “Blueprint for Poverty Reduction”. Discuss how we can support the strategies and work together in Kitchener-Waterloo and area to develop and act on the “Blueprint”.

In July, Marvyn presented the Poverty Reduction Framework and in October a 25 in 5 Network forum was held to encourage all to endorse the Declaration. The 25 in 5 declaration is supported by many local organizations, municipal governments and individuals. The “Blueprint” is based on multiple community consultations across Ontario and input from a range of Network partners with expertise in many areas including in housing, legal aid, economics and social development.
