Lanark County Community Action Network looking for new members

COMMUNITY Aug 31, 2017 Perth Courier

Are you living in the Lanark County or Smiths Falls and wishing that things were different in your neighbourhood? Do you have concerns about the costs of life and the affordability of your home? Are you struggling to make ends meet on an income that doesn’t cover all your basic needs? Are you concerned about how decisions that impact your life are being made? Are you willing to learn how to take action to make change for yourself and others?

If so, the Lanark County Community Action Network (LCCAN) wants to invite you to a meeting at the Table Community Food Centre in Perth to talk to other people with similar interests and to start to formulate an action plan to address the list of issues that local low-income community members and their allies are going to work together to address.

This meeting is the beginning of the next phase of LCCAN’s housing outreach campaign that began last year with funding from the County of Lanark. For the next year, the table is receiving funding from the government of Canada through the Homelessness Partnership Strategy — Rural and Remote funding that will enable us to continue to work with community members across the county on their housing concerns by making it possible for them to meet together regularly.

The recruitment meeting will happen on Wednesday, Sept. 20 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at 190 Gore St. E. in Perth and will focus on how community members can act together to take action on the housing and homelessness issues that were identified in our 2016 survey of low-income community members. This is a drop-in meeting so registration is not necessary. If you want to attend and need transportation help to come, please call 613-267-6428 ext. 4 or email to arrange a ride or for reimbursement for gas costs.

All community members are welcome to attend. A free, delicious lunch will be served at the end of the meeting.
