Building community voice and putting decision-making in the hands of those who are most affected by those decisions, is at the core of the advocacy efforts of ProsperUs. Residents will be engaged to provide their perspectives, stories, input, and expertise to facilitate action to tackle some of the unmet needs of our community. We pay all participants $15.55/hour for meeting attendance.  

About us:
ProsperUs is a collective of more than fifty system leading organizations that have come together to tackle the complex problem of childhood poverty in Windsor-Essex County. The vision of ProsperUs is that every young child has the opportunity and support to succeed – from cradle to career. United Way/Centraide Windsor-Essex County holds the Backbone role and stewards the process and key activities forward on behalf of the collective.

Community Action Network (CAN) Working Groups are resident-led, neighbourhood-based teams. Based on their lived experience, the CANs discussed barriers for children, youth and families in their community and co-create advocacy plans to make systems change.
