Notice biographique / histoire administrative
Project Genesis is a storefront community service organization in the Cote des Neiges-Snowdon area of Montreal. Begun in 1976 by social worker Jim Torczyner, its basic aim was to show the area's disadvantaged citizens how to organize themselves to secure their rights. It dispenses free information, legal advice and assistance. Over the years it has also provided day care, language courses, workshops, and a cafeteria; distributed food baskets; and held a crime prevention program. Volunteers inform area residents about Project Genesis services, discuss community concerns, and provide information, referral and advocacy services. The organization's outreach also serves to combat the effects of poverty and to help elderly residents remain autonomous. Run by staff and trained volunteers, Project Genesis is funded by Federation CJA (formerly Allied Jewish Community Services), government grants, and donations. It is known for its yearly multicultural street festival.
