Before this mission I have never heard of the words "urban resilience", so once I typed in these words following my city I was very surprised as well as intrigued to see an article that read "Poverty is a serious problem in Hamilton". The Welcome Inn Community Center has two specific innovative ways to reduce poverty levels in Hamilton. One innovation is the bizPlan
the other is, savingsPlan
. Families in my city are able to apply for these plans by filling out applications online. The "savingsPlan" is an excellent way for small or large families to improve their economic situation. These plans are not available to everyone however, you must meet all the criteria stated to apply.
I have reached out to two people so far and have advised them about Welcome Inn Community Program hoping that they will be able to reach out to others and continue spreading the word. I will definitely continue to educate my peers of this resilience plan and in return hope for a reduced number in poverty levels in Hamilton, Ontario!
