This is our 6th State of the Inner City Report.
Deciding the focus of this year’s State of the Inner City Report unfolded as it does every year. We began the process by meeting with representatives from various organizations working in the inner city. Some of our partners have participated in the State of the Inner City project since we began six years ago. Others are new to the process this year. What has been consistent about our community partners is that they are deeply committed to improving the communities that they live and work in.
In spite of the many challenges that persist, each day they see the positive impact of their work. They also know, as described by Lucille Bruce, Executive Director of Native Women’s Transition Centre, that “there is a long way yet to go”. But, says Sister Maria Vigna of Rossbrook House, they are “in it for the long haul”.
