E4C is a not-for-profit organization that works across Edmonton, helping people get what they need to tackle life’s challenges. At E4C, we are working to limit, alleviate and ultimately eliminate poverty in Edmonton. Everyone has a story . . . and we believe in a future where poverty isn’t part of it.

 

The process of building a partnership between Alberta Health Services and E4C has begun. The partnership will be opening two new transitional housing projects for adults in 2017. This exciting new program will provide housing for people in the middle of life transitions, looking for stability, and who need a chance to build a better life. We will serve people who, due to histories of trauma and related mental health and addictions barriers, need higher levels of support than is currently available in the community.

 

Our houses will offer a safe and supportive place that will tailor wellness and life skills supports to meet each person’s specific needs. Our houses have recovery oriented services using a harm reduction model, a welcoming environment, inclusive care, and a commitment to excellence. We are looking for energetic, passionate, and dedicated individuals to deliver our wellness driven, person-centered model.
