Weston Park Project

ALUMNI AND FRIENDS to the WESTON COMMUNITY andWeston Park Baptist Church

Our vision is that through the development of the property a center for the community will be created. We envision space for recreation, the arts, performing arts, worship and a place for our partner organizations, Frontlines, The Hopeworks Connection and the Weston Area Emergency Services to carry on their outstanding work in the community.

Reaching out to Young People and Those in Need of a Helping Hand

Through our outreach programs Frontlines and The Hopeworks Connection, we are touching the lives of many young people in Weston. Through the Weston Area Emergency Services program we are housing a food bank that is helping to meet the needs of people who are in a time of need.

Along with a team from the church that includes John Frogley-Rawson, Rob Parsons, Abigail Moriah, Kristy Opoku, Dave Geldart, Jordan Potter-Davey and Steve Rowley we are very excited to be working with Derek Ballantyne and Paul Connelly of DKGi as consultants on this project. While in his role as CEO of Toronto Community Housing, Derek spearheaded the Regent Park Revitalization, one of the most outstanding revitalization projects in Canada, providing a model of how to reinvest in communities by working with the community, public and private sectors.

Derek’s associate, Paul Connelly, specializes in helping non-profit organizations acquire financing. Paul has assisted not-for-profit organization to negotiate with developers mixed developments combining residential and institutional uses.We are truly excited to be working with people of their caliber.

If you haven’t already, please take a few moments to view the videos as they offer many reasons to support this project!

We feel this is a rare and unique opportunity to be involved in the long-term transformation of the community of Weston. We are working with Metrolinx as a partner as well as several other community groups and a consulting team with vast experience in this arena to ensure that the project is done right. The scope of the project is massive, yet the opportunity has presented itself and we believe we must act. We are asking for your financial assistance to make it happen.

The support we are asking for is in the nature of seed money to cover the expected legal costs as well as the costs associated with engaging our consultant team.

Creating this space will also enable our congregation, our partners Frontlines, The Hopeworks Connection and the Weston Area Emergency Services food bank to expand the reach of the work that they do to transform the lives of the people they serve every day. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
