our current facility is a barrier to providing meaningful change in people’s lives and is not an accessible building for those with physical disabilities.
We’re creating a purposefully renovated, state-of-the-art Boyle Street Community Centre.
An appropriately designed, purpose-built Boyle Street Community Centre located in Edmonton’s core:
Facilitates a fundamentally different and better approach to supporting those experiencing chronic homelessness
Creates a purpose-built environment that is warm, inviting, and beautiful — supporting better outcomes
Ensures the community's most vulnerable populations’ basic needs are met while realizing considerable cost savings in terms of healthcare, justice, emergency and social services
Helps BSCS tip the balance from the reactive, day-to-day task of keeping people safe and alive to proactively addressing the root causes of chronic homelessness
Embodies the belief that everyone who finds themselves in a state of chronic homelessness can break the cycles holding them and live a life of dignity and purpose
Supports spiritual healing with intentionally built spaces for access to Indigenous culture, ceremony and medicine
