MCC's impact is global, and it's also very local—including right here in Manitoba. We're walking alongside Manitobans to build healthy communities, families and relationships through a variety of programs:
Abuse Response and Prevention - Promoting positive family life, empowering churches and individuals to respond to abuse, and offering support to people impacted by abuse
Indigenous Neighbours - Building relationships of healing, friendship and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Manitobans through education, advocacy and conversation.
Initiatives for Just Communities - MCC supports restorative justice in Manitoba by partnering with IJC, a faith-based organization offering friendship, support and care to some of those who need it most.
IVEP - Building cross-cultural friendships and supporting local organizations through year-long work placements in Manitoba for young adults from around the world.
Migration and Resettlement - Helping Manitobans respond to the needs of refugees and displaced people around the world.
Newcomer Housing - Providing safe, secure and affordable housing for newcomers through a sponsorship agreement with Old Grace Housing Co-op in Winnipeg.
Peacebuilding and Advocacy - Helping Manitobans of all ages to think, talk and live peacemaking through education, advocacy and dialogue.
Sam's Place - Providing mentorship for youth and a hub for the community at MCC's cafe, used bookstore and music venue in the Elmwood neighbourhood of Winnipeg.
