UrbanPromise Toronto exists to reach children in Toronto Community Housing with the love of Jesus, and raise them into leaders, who restore their community.
About Our Charity
Educators, criminologists and social workers all agree that the most critical hours for inner-city children are between 3pm-6pm and during the summer months. It is during these hours that children are most at risk to predators, the streets and themselves. UrbanPromise Toronto works to create safe environments where children experience nurturing care and attention during these times.
Our dedicated staff and volunteers offer after school programs which feature tutoring assistance, Bible studies, healthy snacks and recreation for children in key Toronto neighbourhoods during the week. Special events like talent shows, community “hangout nights” and field trips to places like the Science Centre, museums, plays and sporting events provide additional opportunities for staff to mentor children.
