Community Building

This video is from our Community Family Group Back 2 School Party in 2019.

Throughout the year, we offer different community-building opportunities to individuals and families that live in our area. Community building takes many forms, but through the practice of Asset Based Community Development, we create space, events, and support based on needs and ideas brought forward by members of the community. This includes but is not limited to programs like Community Family Group, Drop-in, Forms 4 You, and Art Drop-in.

Currently, due to COVID-19, many of our in-person events and programs are on hold. However, we are actively working towards connecting with and supporting community members in adapted ways.

Drop-in:
We are currently open Monday, Wednesday & Thursday from 9 AM- 11 AM.

Due to COVID-19 services are limited, but include mail, bus tickets and passes, faxes, referrals, hygiene & harm reduction supplies.

Winter Warming:
We are currently open 7 nights a week from 6 PM – 9 PM. This program has nightly transportation for community members to shelters.

Community Family Group:
We believe families come in all shapes and sizes and that being connected to our communities can lead to fuller and healthier lives.

Due to COVID-19, this group is not actively meeting, but supports are still available. Contact Tony by using the form below or by phone at 780-481-4001.

What we do:

  • Facilitate and organize community programs and events focused on creating deeper connections to the community at large, knowing where to go for help, peer to peer advocacy, and minimizing social isolation, for example, Community Family Group.
  • Organize and facilitate opportunities for community members to identify & solve problems through engagement.
