To journey together as a community that promotes housing and shelter, community safety, and social inclusion in the City of Peterborough by responding to immediate needs, breaking down barriers amongst us, and advocating for systemic change.
Who we are
One City Peterborough is an organization focused on housing, food security, community safety and inclusion. We are a joining together of Warming Room Community Ministries (WRCM) and Peterborough Reintegration Services.
Warming Room Community Ministries was a grassroots organization that had operated the Warming Room Overnight Shelter, One Roof Community Centre, the HOME Program and One City Peterborough Outreach. It was dedicated to challenging homelessness, food security and social exclusion.
Peterborough Reintegration Services (PRS), founded by Dan Haley, is a restorative justice based organization that has been dedicated for over a decade to assisting individuals coming out of prison to integrate into the community. It has operated programs such as Haley House and Circles of Support and Accountability.
What has unified the organizations is a commitment to building a city where everyone can flourish, where no one is disposable. We are all one city.
