About e4c

e4c is a non-profit human services charitable organization that moves people toward positive, healthy and lasting change. We accept each person at their starting point. With a revenue of over $17 million a year and employing 350 full and part time staff e4c works toward addressing the conditions that limit a person’s ability to fully participate in community.

Community is at the heart of e4c and our programs exist within an attitude of grassroots community development and collaboration. We make positive life change happen by working in partnership with people, interest groups, sister organizations, funders, and the community at large. e4c’s vision is to limit, alleviate and ultimately eliminate poverty. In more than 40 years, e4c’s services have grown to over 20 programs, operating in four quadrants of the city and impacting over 10,000 people every year.  Through the expression of e4c’s values – courage, compassion, connection, commitment – our programs and services address the fundamental causes of vulnerability for children, youth, families, individuals and communities.  We focus our work in four main areas:

1) Shelter and Housing: Having a home is essential to a person’s wellness and quality of life. e4c provides a range of housing services such as emergency shelter, interim housing, affordable housing, permanent supportive housing and supports to get permanent housing and staying housed.

2) Food Security: People living in poverty are more likely to experience food insecurity due to their lack of access to sufficient and nutritious food. e4c increases food security by providing essential support such as three meals a day in our emergency shelter, providing children with a nutritious lunch or snack at school, and building knowledge and skills around food access and nutrition.

3) Education and Skill Development: Education presents one of the pathways out of poverty. e4c works across the lifespan to help people to develop their potential such as providing children with an early advantage to be successful in school, assisting youth to overcome training and employment barriers, and working with vulnerable persons to develop life skills and make positive life changes.

4) Community and Connection: Healthy communities come from healthy relationships between community members. e4c works to grow community capacity through supporting people’s participation within their community, grassroots community projects, and collaborative ventures with other community organizations.

History and Governance

e4c was founded in March 1970 by four of Edmonton’s inner city churches – Augustana Lutheran Church, First Baptist Church, McDougall United Church, and All Saints Anglican Cathedral. This merger of different faith communities to “do good in Canada” was so ground breaking it was covered in an article in the New York Times. Initially, Edmonton City Centre Church Corporation met the needs of homeless women out of the basement of McDougall United.

St. Joseph’s Basilica and Christ Anglican later joined e4c and these inner city churches provide support and candidates for the volunteer board for the organizations.

Current members of e4c are:

  • All Saints Anglican Cathedral;
  • Augustana Lutheran Church;
  • Anglican Parish of Christ Church;
  • First Baptist Church;
  • McDougall United Church; and
  • St. Joseph’s Basilica.
