Lawrence Heights Inter-Organizational Network LHION


The Lawrence Heights Inter-Organization Network (LHION) is a coalition of emerging groups, service providers and other representative organizations delivering programs and services in the communities of Lawrence Heights, Lotherton Pathway and Neptune, one of thirteen priority neighbourhoods in the City of Toronto.  We choose to work together with the City’s Neighbourhood Action Team and residents to coordinate our efforts toward building healthy and sustainable communities. LHION strives to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of neighbourhood governance structures and to increase resident participation and empowerment. We choose to apply an anti-racism, anti-oppression framework to our work.
