Beach United Church received $7,500 from the Ontario government as part of their program to combat hate in Ontario and build stronger, safer and more inclusive communities.

The grant is intended to help ensure faith-based organizations (churches, mosques or synagogues) and cultural organizations (such as, those that serve Black, Indigenous, Asian or 2SLGBTQIA+ communities) have safe and secure community spaces in which to practice their faith or express their cultures and beliefs.

The grant can be used to enhance or implement measures to protect and secure their facilities from hate-motivated incidents, graffiti, vandalism and other damages.

Beach United’s Operation Advisory Committee will be developing recommendations on how to use the funds which may include things like enhancing locks, installing cameras, training staff and other measures.
