Maritimes

MCC Maritimes supports local partners in programs that empower children, youth and adults and invest in healthy and sustainable communities. For example in Sydney Mines, NS we support Community C.A.R.E.S. Youth Outreach, an organization that provides support for youth and young adults as well as skills, employment and leadership training.

There need to be more places like this. Because most everybody feels like they have nobody that understands them.”

—Fawn Burton, former Community C.A.R.E.S. participant, Sydney Mines, Cape Breton

We are available to offer resources and speak or give workshops in churches, schools, universities or with other groups about investing in sustainable livelihoods. Please contact us at maritimes@mcccanada.ca.

Homelessness Prevention and Outreach Program

To experience a life of homelessness is to experience a life of rejection. MCC's Homelessness Prevention and Outreach Program is working on the front lines of the homelessness crisis in the Fraser Valley, providing a holistic response to the issues that homeless individuals face every day.

New Foundations

When newcomers arrive in Canada, the experience can be overwhelming. They must learn how to navigate everyday life in an unfamiliar country, with a different culture, different systems and different customs. For newcomers, finding their financial footing can be a challenge.

Affordable Housing in Manitoba

For decades, MCC has been working with some of Manitoba's most vulnerable and at-risk people. Our work with people groups like newcomers, people coming out of prison and individuals affected by FASD has taught us a critical lesson:

A safe and affordable place to call home is the cornerstone of a stable life for people at risk.

We're partnering with Eden Health Care Services to help provide affordable, supportive housing in Winnipeg.
