A New Tool to Help You Connect to Resources

Our new peer-led community resource guide, York Region on a Limited Budget: How to navigate the region when you don’t have a lot of money, has been rebranded as Up your life resource guide. It has been assembled by individuals with lived-experience in the hopes that their collective information and personal stories will pay-it-forward and help others navigate through similar situations. It includes numerous critical community resource listings, tips, personal stories of struggle and resilience and other helpful information for individuals struggling to make ends meet.

Up Your Life Guide 2021

The York Region on a Limited Budget guide, was made possible thanks to a $74,500 Seed grant made December 2017, by the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF), the rebranded Up your life guide and Up Hub website was made possible by a three year $457,600 OTF Grow grant to help economically vulnerable people more easily access community services.
