COMMUNITY BUILDING

ABOUT THE PROJECT

CityGate partners with City in Focus in the overlapping areas of their visions. This includes connecting people, resources, and the church in conversation and action for the good of the city. One recent example of this partnership is raising money together  for the Communities of Care for Vulnerable Neighbours through the Christian Leaders’ Response Fund.  To date, we have raised over $300,000 towards our goal of half-million dollars.  This money goes directly to churches to help them enhance or develop meal programs for people needing food in their neighbourhoods.
