The proposed project will involve building an extension to the current Community Centre in order to meet the programming demands facing the Centre.  As an organization, we offer free education, employment, social, recreation, and health programs to children, youth, adults, and seniors living in low income housing.  The demand continues to grow for our programs as the need for affordable housing increases.  The current physical space housed by the Centre is becoming inadequate as program particpation continues to grow.  The biggest need for the space right now is revolving around our Homework Haven education program, in which we provide free tutoring assistance to children living in low income housing and surronding area.  The money proposed in this project would allow the Centre to partner with other groups in building an extension to the current space to better serve the children and particpants of the area, particulary in the area of education.

Community Benefit

The proposed project will benefit the community by providing an adequate, modernized space for children and families living in low income housing, to gain the life skills and education they need to move forward in their life and make life changes that will better them, their families, and their whole community. The purpose of offering the free education assistance to these children is to increase the awareness and importance of education in their lives now and as they move into the future. The proposed project would use the financial assistance from Pepsi to build a space onto the current community centre to better meet these demands of the community and the needs of the children and families within the community. With increased education programming, for example, future changes in relation to education and employment would bring evident results to the entire community.
