Low Entropy is a registered charity with a mission to elevate humanity through the power of compassionate, authentic communities. Our programs foster impact by empowering adults, youth, and children through personal growth and meaningful interpersonal connections. 2020 was a busy year for us; we supported 400+ youth and children through our online Youth Empowering Youth program, 2,305 adults through our Conscious Connections sessions, and 585 individuals through our C.A.R.E. project (food hampers & one- on- one support), while managing through the complexities of the pandemic.
