Thank You for Your Support!

Thank you to everyone who supported our Virtual Shoebox Drive in 2020! We are so grateful that we were able to provide gifts to local women impacted by homelessness during this particularly difficult time.

The drive is now over until next holiday season, but you can support our efforts all year long!

Here's how you can help in the off-season:

Cette saison des fêtes, créez une Boîte à chaussures virtuelle​

Cette année, nous nous sommes tous sentis isolés, et en particulier les femmes dans les refuges. Remplir une Boîte à chaussures peut sembler différent cette année, mais son impact est le même.

Créez une Boîte à chaussures virtuelle et en quelques minutes, vous rappellerez à une femme touchée par l’itinérance qu’elle est appréciée et que quelqu’un se sent concerné par son bien-être.

Homelessness in



In one study, 65% of homeless participants said they had not had a permanent residence in at least one year.


The Edmonton Community Foundation Vital Signs report indicates that the services of the Edmonton Food Bank were being accessed by over 22,000 people each month.


Aboriginal people are continuously over-represented among the homeless. In 2014, 50% of youth experiencing homelessness identified as Aboriginal.
