1JustCity is an organization that supports three drop-in community centres in Winnipeg’s core neighbourhoods: West Broadway, the West End and Osborne Village. Our services include daily meals, art, senior’s programs, haircuts, showers, laundry, toiletries, and clean undergarments. In the winter months we also run the pop up warming centre in Osborne Village: Just a Warm Sleep.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
A GUEST FROM ST. MATTHEWS MARYLAND:
"I can’t read, so I didn’t realize what my landlord was trying to get me to agree to. I can’t afford food never mind a lawyer type, coming here, someone read it with me and they didn’t look down on me because I couldn’t do it myself
A GUEST FROM OAK TABLE:
“I never thought of my self as anything but a poor person. When I started in the art program, and I created things that were beautiful… it shocked me that I could do that. I guess there’s something beautiful in me too…
Since 2015, 1JustCity has been loving the underloved. We are located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in Treaty One Territory and in the homeland of the Métis. Through the work of our member charities – Oak Table (est. 1980), St. Matthews-Maryland Community Ministry (est. 1972) and West Broadway Community Services (est. 1979) – and independent programming, every year we help over 15,000 people experiencing poverty, homelessness, mental health struggles, addiction, hunger or loneliness. Our mission is to create a Winnipeg where everyone is welcomed, supported, celebrated and empowered.
