Bridging Teams

Short-term Intended Impact: By 2023, the Bridging Team (BT) model will be utilized by six diverse groups to equip ninety people in new relationships to increase social and economic participation in the community, resulting in increased family and community stability.

Mid-term Intended Impact: By 2025, a Neighbours Network of 300 people (including 100 people and their families living in poverty) will have replaced the negative stigma of poverty with an appreciation of the skills, assets, and gifts of thousands of people living in poverty in Peterborough.

Ultimate Impact: By 2030, Bridges Peterborough will have changed the conversation from fixing poverty to creating a community practice of fair sharing. We will connect people across economic classes in a broadly based network of support.
