About Raise the Rates
RAISE THE RATES is a coalition of community groups and organizations concerned with the level of poverty and homelessness in British Columbia.
Hello! My name is Esther and I live in Renfrew-Collingwood but work in the Downtown Eastside with EMBERS. I am doing the Welfare Food Challenge to learn more about the obstacles people on welfare face when it comes to nutrition, health and wellness. By the end of this experience, I hope to be better equipped to advocate for those struggling with poverty.
