We focus on strategies that reduce or break the cycle of poverty for residents in Central Alberta.
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.
Three Year Grants
We have made three-year grants available to enable more stability for programs.
We have facilitated more than a dozen poverty simulation events Central Alberta. Call us if you’d like to arrange one for your group!
Central Alberta Poverty Reduction Alliance
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.
Build Community Awareness
We have promoted the challenges faced by community members living with low or limited income through our newsletter and social media.
