Status Quo? That's B.S.
At Boyle Street Community Services, we believe that all Edmontonians deserve the opportunity to feel empowered to take control of their lives. While providing over 40 programs across nine locations to those who are experiencing homelessness and poverty, we face an ongoing barrier: the status quo.
Unfortunately, the current status quo in our city further discriminates against those who are already marginalized. Misconceptions about homelessness, prejudice, and a lack of understanding about mental health and addiction issues means there are few spaces where our vulnerable neighbours feel safe or welcome. Our programs and services are underfunded and filled beyond their capacity.
We must face the facts: the status quo isn’t good enough for those experiencing homelessness and poverty in Edmonton – in fact, the status quo is B.S.
That’s why we’re asking you to Take the Pledge and say “That’s B.S.” to the status quo.
Empowering Edmontonians? That's Boyle Street.
