WHO BELONGS TO PPAG
Peel Poverty Action Group (PPAG) is composed of people who are homeless, who are struggling, service providers, advocates and individuals working towards the elimination of poverty in the Region of Peel.
HOW WE BEGAN
PPAG began in November, 1997, arising from a Child Poverty Forum sponsored by the Social Planning Council of Peel.
PPAG’s mission is to work toward eliminating poverty by increasing awareness and sensitivity to the needs of those affected by poverty and to advocate for positive social and political change.
WHAT WE TRY TO DO
We provide information, resources, education, to service agencies, people who are affected by poverty and the community at large. We help form links and partnerships with those affected by poverty, service providers, and all levels of government to alleviate poverty and work towards eliminating it. We encourage the community to work towards social change.
PPAG welcomes as members all those concerned about poverty in Peel.
