Our Vision

To serve, support, and empower.

 
 

Boyle Street Community Services has been working in the inner city of Edmonton since 1971 to serve, support, and empower people to take control of their lives and escape the cycle of poverty and homelessness. Boyle Street Community Services provides over 40 programs and services to over 9000 individuals every year.

The mission of Boyle Street Community Services is to build and provide community support for people with multiple barriers to inclusion. Our vision is to see that all people grow healthier through involvement in strong, accepting and respectful communities.

Many of our daily clients are either sleeping rough or in shelters. They are all, without exception, extremely poor, and many of them are marginalized because of their ethnicity and their poverty. Because of the challenges of street life, we focus on providing cultural, outreach, mental health, housing, family and youth, and employment services. Our inclusive Drop-In complements these services and provides our community a place to enjoy great food, warmth, and companionship.

At the heart of our work, we listen, care and empower our clients in order to assist them to find solutions to their challenges. Our community members are diverse, and we welcome everyone. We serve adults, youth, and families and are proud to act as a knowledgeable resource for Aboriginal, LGBTQ2S+ and new immigrant communities.

One of RE/MAX Elite's core values is to strive to make a real difference in the communities where we live and work, through volunteering, donating, and showing leadership in these areas.  

In partnership with Boyle Street Community Services, RE/MAX Elite came up with the idea of holding a fundraising gala that will raise funds to allow Boyle Street to expand existing services and add to infrastructure development of the current facilities.  It is our mutual goal that through this gala, we can raise over $300,000 to help those served by Boyle Street.

Your contributions to our Gala through ticket purchases and donations will provide the funds we need to create necessary building facilities like toilets, showers, and more.

The feelings of humility and gratitude our team experienced [while volunteering] led us to want to make Boyle Street Community Services a larger part of our community spirit.
