Aurora Cares Community Action Team

We held our first meeting of the Aurora Cares Action Team on May 13 where we discussed new ways to connect vulnerable community members to available services, as well as any potential in-kind supports that we may be able to provide. We also discussed revising the resource guide that we  developed during COVID-19 to include updated information and links and include housing supports.

The reality is that there continues to be many residents in Aurora who aren’t aware of, or can’t access, important supports and services. Thanks to the Action Team members —a diverse array of community members— who not only identify needs amongst vulnerable groups, but also have the time and resources to connect their fellow residents with help they may need.

These members include Wendy Browne, President of the Aurora Rotary Club; York Regional Police Superintendent Russ Bellman; Sandra Humfryes, former Aurora Town Councillor; Rosalyn Gonsalves, former General Manager of the Aurora Chamber of Commerce; Doug Steele, Chair of Welcoming Arms; Captain Fred Reid, Lead Pastor of Northridge Community Church, Salvation Army; Angela Covert, Community Relations Representative, Northridge Community Church, Salvation Army; as well as Aurora residents Marco Di Girolamo and Alexandra Bonham.

Looking ahead, we will be meeting monthly and I am looking forward to this action team working together to help vulnerable residents connect with important supports and services in our community.
