VISION

OUR VISION IS TO CREATE COMMUNAL TABLES WHERE GIFTS ARE SHARED. AND LIVES ARE VALUED WITHIN JUST, EQUITABLE AND SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITIES.

MISSION

TO GENERATE GRASSROOTS SOLUTIONS TO LOCAL CHALLENGES THROUGH THE BUILDING OF RELATIONSHIPS OF TRUST AND PURPOSE

EVERY INDIVIDUAL
IS OF VALUE

Stone Soup Network forms strategic partnerships, within a neighbourhood, to build relationships of trust, find local solutions to inequity and sustainability, and provide those who experience exclusion (women, economically disadvantaged, homeless, socially isolated elderly, newcomers, disadvantaged youth, and others) the additional resources they need to belong.

Thanks to you, Liam can attend day care. With help from our supporters, we can operate a program that connects local businesses, like Windermere Kids where Liam attended day care, with front-line community leaders. Those community leaders include social workers, shelter staff, doctors and spiritual leaders who are working with their clients to achieve long-term economic, physical and mental health goals. Your gift helps families like Liam’s have a chance at the same opportunity as everyone else.
