The Storefront uses the Connected Community Approach to community development.  What that means is that whether you are part of a resident group, organization or institution, we want to connect with you to see how together we can help the KGO community to thrive.

We’re happy to speak with you about any collaboration opportunity…here are just a few of the ways we collaborate

Supporting resident groups to interact with other resident groups, participate in resident led events, initiatives and projects – contact Calvin Kangara ckangara@thestorefront.org

Facilitating collaborative initiatives among the organizations in the KGO community – contact Shane Beharry sbeharry@thestorefront.org*

Supporting nonprofit programs and services organizations to bring their expertise through the community through the provision of free spaces, co-ordinated outreach and collective initiatives – contact Shane Beharry sbeharry@thestorefront.org*

Helping institutions (like University of Toronto Scarborough and others) get better connected with community building work on the ground – contact Shane Beharry sbeharry@thestorefront.org*

We’d love to hear from you!
