Our Vision: A community where no human being is deprived of the resources, means, choices and power to acquire and maintain self sufficiency while being able to be an active participant in society.
Our Mission: To end poverty in Calgary and enhance the well-being of all Calgarians.

Build inter-governmental networks
Advocate for those living in poverty
“Sustainable and inclusive communities creating their own social, economic and environmental futures.”
A community free from poverty, where all people live with dignity and health and have:
Secure and affordable housing, food, and income and are able to meet their basic needs
Employment with good wages
Access to education and training throughout their lifespan
Opportunities to reach their full potential using their energy, creativity and talents
Opportunities to be involved and included
