Main Street Project is a Community Health Centre located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. 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.
