The Rivertowne Safety 1st Group is a resident collective comprised of Toronto Community Housing’s fabulous women-leaders, dedicated to making a positive impact in the community. They host core community programs and events such as Rivertowne's Breakfast Program, Homework Club, Annual Community BBQ and the Multi-Cultural fair. These initiatives, spear-headed by community resident an advocate, Joan King, aim to bring people in the Rivertowne community together regardless of their family’s income level and give them something to look forward to while building a sense of community.
Rivertowne is Canada's first revitalized mixed-income community, comprising public housing, market rent housing, and condo units and Joel Weeks Park. Located in Toronto's Riverside neighbourhood, just east of the Don Valley, Rivertowne has a rich history of culture and community involvement.
