Bringing the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of colour) Communities Closer to Mainstream Social Services Delivery and Programming!
Becoming the hub of multiculturalism and culturally appropriate and contextualized social services programming
Ensuring that all programming is conducted for and by those with lived experiences within the marginalized BIPOC
Administering social services to the marginalized BIPOC Communities
The marginalized and racialized BIPOC minority communities struggle under the heavy burden of unemployment, under-employment, housing challenges, mental health problems, food insecurity, and systemic barriers to accessing social services.
Kingdom Acts Foundation (KAF) seeks to tackle these multifaceted problems from an intersectoral and culturally appropriate lens recognizing the intersectionality of these inequities.
Inefficient new immigrant resettlement processes often lead to unemployment or under-employment, which translates to low income, food insecurity, mental health problems, family crisis, housing problems, and the increasing poverty rate among the BIPOC communities.
KAF’s mandate focuses on tackling these intersecting and interconnected problems to bridge the gap caused by social-economic inequities while empowering the BIPOC communities to thrive and flourish.
