Loves the Underloved
1JustCity is an organization founded to strengthen and sustain social justice work in Winnipeg. We support three drop-in community centres in three core neighbourhoods: West Broadway, the West End, and Osborne Village. Our services include daily meals, senior’s programs, laundry, showers, art, Indigenous programming, health-care support, seasonal clothing, and more. During the winter months, we operate an overnight warming shelter, Just a Warm Sleep, at the Osborne Village location.
Each of the drop-in sites (West Broadway Community Services, West End Drop-In, and Oak Table Inc.) serve people experiencing homelessness, food insecurity, addictions, isolation, and those who are excluded because of their race, income, beliefs, or sexual orientation.
Each drop-in provides an opportunity for guests to gain the capacity to build a better life. 1JustCity aims to create inclusive spaces where everyone is accepted and cared for.
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.
