SoYoung x Yonge Street Mission

“Poverty is what happens when people give up caring for each other.”

At SoYoung, we believe in the power of human potential. We are all capable of greatness. But when our basic needs aren’t being met, potentiality is irrelevant. We decided to make Yonge Street Mission our charitable partner because of their audacious goal of ending chronic poverty in Toronto in one generation. We align with their brazenness and want to be part of helping them reach their goal. Can you imagine the potentiality of a city that beat poverty?

As a local Christian development agency, Yonge Street Mission believes that each and every one of the 500,000 people experiencing poverty in Toronto has immense value. All resources and energy are focused on working to respond to immediate needs and help people move from surviving to thriving. By combining collective resources and wisdom, together we can reach our goal of ending chronic poverty in a generation.
