WHO WE ARE
Welfare Avenue is a community organization that is led by students from various fields of study and academic institutions based both in Montreal and Ontario. Our team of staff and volunteers work diligently with partnering organizations and community members at large to address the needs of the population we serve and to work collaboratively to ensure a better future for all.
We believe that caring is sharing and engage all members of the community and other students to give back to their communities in fulfilling ways. This community of our beneficiaries, volunteers, and staff is built on the principle of mutual benefit. As our volunteers dedicate their time and efforts to support marginalized groups and provide necessary resources, they also gain invaluable experiences and personal growth. Through their involvement, volunteers develop empathy, leadership skills, and a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by marginalized communities.
In turn, our beneficiaries benefit from the dedicated support of our volunteers. They receive the necessary resources, opportunities, and guidance to help them overcome the barriers that prevent them from living their lives to the fullest. The mutually beneficial nature of our community fosters a sense of empowerment, belonging, and hope among all those involved.
Together, we strive towards achieving our organization's vision of a world free from poverty, where marginalized groups are supported and given the tools to thrive. Through our collective efforts, we aim to create positive change and build a brighter future for everyone involved.
