Elected members of the Tenants' Association decided to meet every Thursday at the community dinner and plan various activities. The meetings are open for the rest of the tenants to drop in and participate in review and planning of the activities.

The community regularly meets every Thursday evening to discuss community development and safety issues. Activities such as Dinner and Chat and Women Exercise Club, organized under No Community Left Behind Project, provide community an opportunity to come together and share their concerns with service providers from outside.

Tenants’ Association and the Community House work closely for planning and implementing community development activities. They planned to meet a week after the AGM to plan joint activities and proposals for funding to different agencies which have showed interest in supporting the TA.
