“Making it Happen Together”
The San Romanoway Revitalization Association (SRA), located on the North-East quadrant of Jane and Finch, is a not-for-profit social services organization founded on the premise of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Crime Prevention through Social Development (CPTSD).
Our mission is to create a sense of belonging in the San Romanoway community by assisting families, individuals and groups to support each other by building a safer and healthier environment.
• Community development and safety
• Finding proactive solutions to solve the problems of youth violence in the neighbourhood
• To provide cultural/social, recreational, educational and enrichment programs for children, youth and families
• To provide employment training, life skills coaching and other opportunities for marginalized “at risk” youth
Background of the Association:
In 1999, building ownership and management met with law enforcers, residents, local businesses, community organizations, and community leaders to discuss the escalation of crime and vandalism to property in the neighbourhood. Residents had become cynical about the prospects for change; the task of nurturing the positive qualities of the community began with residents identifying social/cultural, educational, employment, recreational and enrichment programs for children, youth and families as a priority. Recognizing the urgent need for leadership and assistance, the San Romanoway Revitalization Association was created.
The Association is committed to help enrich the lives of its community members, and provide a safe and nurturing environment for its youth and children.
