About
POTS is a ‘one-stop shop’ assisting individuals living in poverty on their journeys from crisis to stability and ultimately, self-sufficiency. POTS is dedicated to providing a professional and hospitable environment where every interaction is based on compassion and respect. We believe that every person should have access to the essentials of life and the support necessary to achieve stability, and ultimately self-sufficiency. We believe POTS’ ‘one-stop shop’ model of providing a coordinated and comprehensive package of support is the best means of addressing the myriad needs that accompany poverty.
