Emergency Response

As our city, province, and nation responds to the COVID-19 crisis, Streets Alive Mission is doing everything possible to ensure the well-being of our clients, donors, volunteers, and staff. We are monitoring the situation closely acting on the advice of Alberta Health Services and other public officials.

The people we serve are among the population most highly at risk of infectious disease… every day. Most have pre-existing health conditions with compromised immune systems, limited access to medical and poor nutrition.

Therefore, Streets Alive Mission, its executive staff and Board of Directors have determined that we will continue to offer all services, with the exception of Foot Friday (foot health program) as we continue to serve this vulnerable population.

We are taking precautionary measures to protect both our community and the public at large by:

  • Continuing to provide essential services such as food, clean clothing, hygiene supplies, and sanitation items to people in need;
  • Increasing sanitation and hygiene measures at all our locations;
  • Implementing safety protocols in place to prevent the spread of disease as recommended by Alberta Health Services.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

  • Please pray – for our clients, our staff, our volunteers, and our civic, provincial, and federal leaders.
  • Please give – an Emergency Response Fund has been activated.

Streets Alive Mission’s resources are stretched to the limits as we work to cope with increased demand on our services as other agencies are continuing to close.

  • Please continue to drop off essential items for our clients.

Our drop-off zone is located at our back door and is accessible by a buzzer where you will be met by staff.

ITEMS ALWAYS IN NEED

      • Men’s jeans: waist sizes 32 – 36
      • Shoes: sizes 9 – 12
      • Hoodies
      • Backpacks

      • Peanut butter
  • Please take advantage of our online giving portals at streetsalive.ca or call the Mission during business hours to speak to our staff.

We thank you for continuing to help us help the most vulnerable in our community!

Poverty is real in Lethbridge.

 

Poverty is not a “topic”. It is real people in real trouble.

Yes! There is poverty in Lethbridge, and it is affecting people you know, right now.

  • People are choosing between paying rent and buying lunch for their kids because they can’t do both.
  • People are couch surfing, sleeping “rough” out in the elements, or worse, because they can’t afford a room of their own for even one night.
  • People walk kilometre after kilometre, everywhere they go, through wind and rain and snow, because they cannot afford bus fare.

These aren’t just any people. These are OUR people – people of Lethbridge!

There is a face (and a name, and a story) for every person served at Streets Alive Mission. These faces matter!

Face up to poverty in Lethbridge!
