Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Community development is a thread that runs through many of carya’s programs. By empowering people to change their lives and their communities, we leave a legacy of long-term change.
Empowerment comes from knowledge and carya facilitates community conversations addressing a range of issues, topics and concerns within the communities we work.
Recent examples include:
Everything you need to know about Registered Education Savings Accounts – a drop-in learning session helping parents understand how to register for a RESA and what the benefits are. Free child-care and snacks included.
Golden Hands Community Conversation – a lunch and learn to discuss the home maintenance needs of older adults from our Gatekeepers (handy people trained in elder friendly practice).
