The Bissel Centre has a remarkable history of serving the Edmonton community since its humble beginnings as a small Methodist congregation in 1910. For over 100 years, the Bissel Centre has supported the most vulnerable groups of people. Whether it was offering a place of worship and English lessons for new Ukranian migrants in the early 1900's, a congregation for Japanese Canadians during the Japanese Internment period, or providing front-line services and shelter to many of Edmonton's homeless and under-housed populations today, the Bissel Centre has always been there for the least fortunate.
Today the Bissel Centre helps empower individuals, families, and the community to live meaningful, healthy lives. They help provide housing to over 500 people living on the streets, provide food and clothing to those who need it most, along with mental health services, family support services, as well as employment services. To learn more about Bissel's programs, visit their program page by clicking here.
