The San Romanoway Revitalization Association (SRRA), located on the North-East quadrant of Jane and Finch, is a not-for-profit social services organization founded on the premise of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Crime Prevention through Social Development (CPTSD).
In 1999, building ownership and management met with law enforcers, residents, local businesses, community organizations, and community leaders to discuss the escalation of crime and vandalism to property in the neighborhood. Residents had become cynical about the prospects for change; the task of nurturing the positive qualities of the community began with residents identifying social/cultural, educational, employment, recreational and enrichment programs for children, youth and families as a priority. Recognizing the urgent need for leadership and assistance, the San Romanoway Revitalization Association was created. SRRA is licensed under the Ministry of Education Child Care and Early Years Act – 2014.
