POVERTY

moving from poverty to possibility

We focus on strategies that reduce or break the cycle of poverty for residents in Central Alberta.

The Issue

13 %
of red deer's

population is living in poverty in Central Alberta.

5900
families

or individuals are living in poverty in Central Alberta.

500000
Albertans

were not able to meet their basic needs.

One person in poverty is too many.

We help people meet their basic needs, build pathways out of poverty and build assets through our investments in housing, employment and financial literacy programs.

We have made three-year grants available to enable more stability for programs.

We are a partner in the Central Alberta Poverty Reduction Alliance.  CAPRA is working to reduce the number of barriers that exist for persons living in poverty to ensure that Central Alberta is A Vibrant Community Where Everyone Thrives.

We co-hosted several¬†poverty simulation events in Central Alberta. Call us if you’d like to arrange one for your group!

We have promoted the challenges faced by community members living with low or limited income through our newsletter and social media.
