It's not easy to merge four independent, not-for-profit agencies into one. But that's what is happening to RAISE, the Kitchener-Waterloo Friendship Group, KW Meals on Wheels, and Cambridge Meals on Wheels and Community Home Supports.

The KWCF supports groups interested in building stronger communities. Safety concerns and poor living conditions on and near Paulander Drive in Kitchener brought together a group of community partners. Neighbourhood residents, the Region of Waterloo, Community Fund grants, and an assessment by the Centre for Research & Education in Human Resources (CREHS) contributed to neighbourhood planning.
