September 13, 2017– Stratford, ON – Hoping to explore matters affecting sense of belonging and community connection, this past June, along with help from several local organizations (see list below), the Stratford Perth Community Foundation (SPCF) hosted their inaugural Vital Conversation .
“We chose ‘sense of belonging’ as the topic for our first conversation because it is a fundamental human need – just like food or shelter – and is essential to our sense of happiness and well-being,” shares Tracy Van Kalsbeek, SPCF Executive Director. “We were thrilled with the level of engagement from the community around this issue and, as promised, a final report is available for anyone who’s interested in finding out what we learned.”
