“No one has ever become poor by giving.” – Buddha

Who has trouble affording a home?

One in four Edmonton households spend more than 30% of their income on rent, with over 20,000 households paying more than 50%! Who are they?

Our religious and spiritual communities share important values: respect for human dignity, solidarity with those who are poor and vulnerable, and an affirmation of the importance of inclusive and welcoming communities where individuals and families can thrive.”  – The Capital Region Interfaith Statement (2011)
