Moving Forward 2015 Foundation


Our programs give a hand up, not a hand out.

THE NEXT STEP PROGRAM offers an interest free loan of up to $1,000.00 that can be used for such things as rent, utilities, furniture, moving expenses and all those other hidden costs that are applicable to starting over.  Currently, the program is only available to York Region residents.

This type of loan program has been running successfully for years in Toronto and the Region of Peel, however residents of York Region did not have access to these programs due to geographical restrictions.

We work with recipients to ensure an effective and manageable repayment schedule that helps build a credit history.  Next Step participants can rest assured that this program is designed to work with them in every sense to help them towards financial independence.


Education Fund

Our Education Fund offers a one-time grant of up to $750 to recipients returning to school, to be used for tuition, books, or educational tools (such as a laptop).  This grant can be awarded to Next Step recipients as well as those applying independently.

The program was established through the generous donation of the Marc Santi Foundation, and continues to help those to move forward with their lives through furthering their education.
