Where the Heart Is


There is nothing more expressive and meaningful than giving back to the communities in which we live. At times, we lose a sense of connection to our communities and those around us in need. Our greatest commitment is to the following two programs, under the umbrella of the Edmonton City Center Church Corporation (E4C).

 

E4C Guide to Programs: "Changing Lives - Growing Community"

 

School Lunch Program

 

With one in five children in Edmonton living in poverty, E4C's School Lunch Program feeds hungry children in high-needs schools. By providing a well-balanced lunch to children, E4C's School Lunch Program is helping children to concentrate on their school work, not on their hunger.

Crossroads Outreach

 

Each year Crossroads means support, safety and hope to over 500 youth and adults trapped in the abuse, health risks and exploitation involved with prostitution. The average age of entry into prostitution is 16, although children have been exploited as young as 11. Many come from homes where there was emotional, physical or sexual abuse.

Our collection of toiletries and gently used ladies clothing for Crossroads Outreach takes place all year long. Please get in touch for more information or to arrange a pick-up. We thank our families, friends, colleagues, and clients for their ongoing commitment and immeasurable generosity.
