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.

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.
