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!
