Covid 19 update

During these unprecedented times, MyCityCare is working hard to coordinate resources for our communities, partnering with local agencies and addressing needs as they arise to provide essential services during the COVID-19 outbreak in Alberta.

Ongoing projects

Food is Non-Negotiable

Food insecurity is still a leading need in our communities, both locally and globally. Partnering with existing food banks and agencies, we provide emergency support, food hampers, food programs and community initiatives to assist those with food insecurity.

Shelter is Key

Shelter is one of the most influential factors in moving people out of a life of poverty and risk, and into a sustainable living situation. In partnership with Not4Sale, we create safe homes for those exiting the sex trade and impacted by human trafficking.

Clothing is Essential

Clothing is tied to human dignity, often linked to our identity and expression, job placement and careers. We provide access to free clothing stores, pop-up events, giveaways and operate a mobile unit to help alleviate this need in our local communities.

Water is Life

Did you know there are people in Canada with no access to drinking water? One of the things requested most by those at risk is water. We currently provide clean drinking water through our downtown outreach programs.

Health is Everything

Without good health and hygiene, other supports are insignificant. We actively look for ways to promote healthy communities. From COVID-19 emergency relief to hygiene kits, we provide essentials for good health.

Justice is Freedom

Through our partnership with Not4Sale, we are creating local and global programming and initiatives to help rescue and restore those impacted by human trafficking.

Registrations for programs can be done online through our website for most seasonal programs such as Shop of Wonders, The Cinderella Project and Stuff the Bus across our campus locations. Choose a location near you and a local MyCityCare representative will connect with you to follow up with campus-specific information. MyCityCare does not require proof of income, identification or qualifying requirements to receive help. Each request is taken on a case-to-case basis and some locations may require additional questions or follow-up.

Not4Sale

We are dedicated to stopping and preventing child trafficking. We will stand up for their rights to be children; to be free and innocent. We will be the voice when theirs have been silenced. We will continue to fight for them, as long as we have to. Let’s end child trafficking and exploitation together.
