Many thanks to the Winnipeg Committee for Safety who provided Main Street Project with a grant to replace windows in its Protective Care facility.
Comprising volunteer citizen members who offer diverse and passionate perspectives, The Winnipeg Committee for Safety (WCFS) is mandated to advise the Mayor and Council on safety issues as they impact City of Winnipeg policies, procedures and services. The WCFS’ ongoing role is to provide information, formulate recommendations and monitor progress regarding safety issues within our communities. The Committee meets monthly and reports to the Executive Policy Committee.
The WCFS works with citizens and local organizations to make Winnipeg a safe and healthy city. Since 1999, the Committee has brought people together from across the city to brainstorm ideas, share information, set priorities, build networks among residents and agencies and empower residents to take action in their own neighbourhoods.
Our mandate is to support, assist, stimulate and mobilize the community. We aim to stay ahead of the curve and lead community initiatives proactively and with forward thinking.
