About

We hire clients of Boyle Street Community Services who are eager to find meaningful employment.

We are a patchwork made up of members of the downtown community who face barriers to employment, most of whom are experiencing homelessness and poverty. We hire youth, adults, and seniors. Our taskers are highly capable, driven individuals who are excited to have meaningful work and purposeful employment.

 

hiregood was born out of the need to connect our taskers with the general public. We needed a simple, easy-to-use platform that connected our employees with the tasks that needed doing around Edmonton.

About

Four Directions Financial is an ATB agency that ensures Edmontonians who are homeless or living in poverty can open—often for the first time—a bank account with a mainstream financial institution.
Four Directions Financial offers the same products and services—like cashing cheques and saving money in a safe and secure place—found in any ATB location.

 

  • By using innovative technology, like biometric identification, Four Directions Financial makes banking more accessible than ever for the previously unbanked.

  • The agency was developed in partnership with Boyle Street Community Services through extensive consultations with social agencies and their clients.

  • Every aspect of Four Directions Financial—from the name to the services offered to the paint colours—was guided by clients. It's the first financial service provider of its kind in Alberta.

  • Four Directions Financial is open to everyone. You do not have to be a Boyle Street Community Services client to bank here.
