We work towards a city where all are cared for,
have enough to eat, a
place they belong, and
Our four pillars:
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, sharing circles, 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.
A Trusted Non-Profit Organization in Winnipeg
Welcome to 1JustCity, a non-profit, charitable organization that promotes social justice and addresses issues such as homelessness, food insecurity, and provides culturally appropriate supports to their Indigenous guests. Our mission is to create a welcoming, inclusive community that uplifts marginalized individuals and families.
We’re Dedicated to Helping People
As a leading organization in Winnipeg, we offer various programs and services that aim to meet the diverse needs of our community. Our indigenous cultural programs are designed to celebrate and promote the rich cultural heritage of the indigenous peoples of Winnipeg. We work closely with indigenous communities to provide programs, events, and activities that promote healing, reconciliation, and cultural understanding.
Our Housing and Eviction Prevention program is focused on providing support, resources, and advocacy to individuals and families experiencing homelessness, or living in unstable housing. We believe everyone deserves a safe and secure place to call home and work tirelessly to connect those in need with the resources and services they require to find housing or keep the housing they may already have.
At 1JustCity, we understand that food insecurity is a significant issue in Winnipeg, and we are committed to feeding the hungry in our community. Our food programs, including our food bank and our breakfast, lunch and dinner services, provide nutritious meals and supplemental food hampers to those in need, regardless of their background or circumstances.
Our social justice work aims to create a community where all individuals are included, valued, respected, and empowered to reach their full potential, is only made possible by people like you. We invite you to join us in our journey to make Winnipeg a more just and compassionate place for everyone.
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
A GUEST FROM WEST END DROP-IN:
"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 Red River Métis Nation. 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) – 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.
