Everything Bissell Centre does is grounded in its vision of eliminating poverty.

Our Mission

Working in community, we remove barriers and support people as they move out of poverty.

A Community Without Poverty

Ending poverty in our community may seem like an impossible dream, but Bissell Centre believes that if we all take steps that align with that goal, it will become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

In our experience, great things happen when we work together toward change. Just ask any of the 15,759 people who have found homes because of Edmonton’s 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness. We know that eliminating poverty cannot be done by a single individual or group. It takes a commitment from the entire community, even you!

Working toward a poverty-free community is not simply a hope, belief, or bold statement. It is an invitation for you to join us. We believe that a community without poverty will see the following:

  1. Families and individuals have sustainable livelihoods, secure and safe housing, and can meet their basic daily needs.
  2. Families and individuals have strong and healthy support networks, a sense of safety, and physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental health to engage in their community more fully.
  3. Families and individuals have an increased sense of hope for the future.
  4.  Individuals have access to the resources and opportunities they need to recognize and reach their full and desired potential.
