Loves the Underloved
We are where people come to belong, to be accepted, to get a hug and experience love, and to gain the means to build a better life. Because of donors just like you, people are supported to build themselves up so they can in turn build up their communities.
This often starts with a meal, a food hamper, or a warm place to sleep then grows thanks to our compassionate volunteers making connections with our guests!
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.
Each of our drop-in sites (West Broadway Community Services, St. Matthews Maryland Community Ministry, Oak Table Inc.) serve those living with addictions, those without a place to call home, or those shunned by others based on race, income and sexual orientation.
The need for their presence continues to grow, especially in these times of economic stress.
1JustCity’s mission is to strengthen and sustain social justice work in Winnipeg through the financial support of its member charities.
1JustCity works towards a city that is founded on justice, where all are heard, all are welcome, all are cared for, all are celebrated and all are working together.
