The Anglican Diocese of Edmonton, Capital Region Housing Interfaith Housing Initiative and EndPovertyEdmonton (EPE) have teamed up to provide a new resource for Edmonton’s religious and spiritual communities.
EPE is a new community entity, co-chaired by Bishop Jane Alexander and Dr. Jeffrey Bisanz, launched in late 2016 to steward the bold vision to end poverty in a generation. In December, Edmonton City Council unanimously supported investment to activate a 5-year community road map. The six Game Changers identified in the EPE Road Map, which aims to lift 10,000 Edmontonians out of poverty in the next five years, are:
- Eliminate Racism
- Livable Incomes
- Affordable Housing
- Accessible and Affordable Transit
- Affordable Child Care
- Access to Mental Health Services and Addictions Support.
