While we don’t seek out recognition, we’ve received quite a bit over the past few years.
It is gratifying to know that our effectiveness is being recognized, that our model has been cited in articles and is the topic of research. We hope that recognition will lead to more people and communities learning about the way we work in community, so we can share our experiences and learn from others.

“This pilot study explores the impact of Priority Neighbourhood designation on the development of social infrastructure in one community in Southeast Scarborough: Kingston-Galloway/Orton Park. This research uncovers a range of creative approaches to targeted investment, local capacity building, and community governance that have a positive impact in cultivating social infrastructure that should be celebrated, supported, and shared.”
- The East Scarborough Storefront Project: A successful inter-organizational service collaboration (September, 2007)
Brenda Roche and Joan Roberts
“The East Scarborough Storefront (The Storefront) was chosen to explore and determine the critical factors and dynamics of partnership and collaboration that lead to a successful, formalized, inter-organizational service collaboration. The Storefront stands out as a unique example of non-profit work, emerging out of a coalition of community members, local faith-based organizations, and community-based service providers who identified an area marked by an increasingly vulnerable population of newcomers with high needs who were under-served by agencies.”
- Trends in performance management
In 2010 the HR Council of Canada cited the East Scarborough Storefront as an innovative approach to best practices in human resources management. A webinar was developed around The Storefront’s compensation strategy and an article written focusing on The Storefront’s approach to performance management.
