East Scarborough Storefront, a Tides Canada Initiatives project, is working in community in a new way. And it’s exhilarating. And it’s messy. And it’s working!
We can no longer afford to work in isolation. We believe the power of collaboration can change the way we do business in the charitable sector. In fact, we spent our first ten years leveraging the power of collaboration to support people and build community. Read more about it in our new book: The Little Community that Could.
