Halton Poverty Roundtable (HPRT)
United Way of Burlington & Greater Hamilton is an active and lead member of the Halton Poverty Roundtable, providing financial and in-kind support in the form of office space and information technology support. The Halton Poverty Roundtable (HPRT) is a collaborative multi-sector group comprised of volunteers who are committed to leveraging resources and partnerships to eliminate poverty in Halton through education, greater community engagement, and collective impact. The HRPT believes poverty is the experience of a community member who is unable to fully participate in community because they are denied access to the basic resources, means, choices, knowledge, and power necessary for self-sufficiency. The HPRT believes in the right of every person to live in good health and with dignity.
