Since 1972 we’ve served the needs of Winnipeg’s most vulnerable residents and have always worked towards helping our community find its collective footing.
We recognize the importance of a solid foundation, both in the community and on an individual level, and we work hard to build strength on both large and small scales. We help our community as a whole by providing safe spaces and essentials of life and also work with each individual involved in our organization to build personal stability.
This stability is developed in steps and – though the journey looks different for each who embarks on it– ultimately comes down to one common goal: making positive changes so we can all live, work and play in a healthy community.
The programs and services we offer – from basic food and shelter to crisis support to transitional housing – are built on a foundation of mutual respect and compassion. We work with the housing-first philosophy: that people are better able to make positive life choices and move forward if they are first housed.
Our 110-person Main Street Project team welcomes the community with open arms and without judgement, then works together to build a better future.
We hold the community in our collective hands and also all hold pieces of the community’s successes.
