We have been open on weekends at our West End location all of 2021! This weekend is no exception. The team will take tomorrow off (with West Broadway staying open to support the community) and then be open all weekend.

We are proud to have guided Sagkeeng First Nation in policy and opening their own overnight shelter (on-reserve) during the polar vortex. Band Councillor Lin Dorie had sought us out and made a donation to Just a Warm Sleep!

There were jackets, sweaters, sweat pants and long johns! We had such fun giving things out!

Thank you to Victor Bird and Tracy Bunn!

"Today is our last fire of the season, we will be holding a feast to honor the opportunity our warming fire brought to our community. We thank everyone for their contributions to this community fire and honor the light it has brought and carried us through a second wave, isolation, winter and lockdowns. We continued to share in story and teachings through the winter and built stronger relationships with our West End Community."

Building Capacity, What does that look like?
Often it is acceptance, a listening ear, and a space to just be. Sometimes it is helping folks navigate tricky systems, and situations. Everyday at 1JustCity we work to grow our capacity and the folks around us.

Luke Rempel founded Beat The Cold in 2019 to make sure no Winnipegger has to be outside in our harsh winter weather.

Thanks to Luke’s hard work and your participation, Beat The Cold is helping up to 30 people with nowhere else to go access Just A Warm Sleep, our no-barrier shelter.

Thank you for saving lives tonight and a HUGE thanks to Luke for all his dedication and hard work. We’re joyfully carrying on your project!💙

Congratulations to all of our Centennial River Trail Contest Week 5 winners, each of which won a $1,000 grant for their selected Manitoba charity:

- Barb Howie and their charity of choice: Costume Museum of Canada

- Natasha and their charity of choice: 1JustCity
- Sean G and Nicole Kjartanson and their charity of choice: Women's Health Clinic (WHC)

Actively Loving

With your help we make sure Winnipeg’s underloved have a brighter day; Your support of 1JustCity provides places for people to be welcome, to feel safe and to be valued. Through our 4 members we serve over 700 individuals weekly, 200 people accessing supports for their families. Our programs provide immediate needs like food, showers, laundry, etc. but more crucially; safety and stabilization to individuals at risk of mental health crises, peer advocates to support people at their most vulnerable. We also have an Elder for our city’s residential school survivors and art programming three days a week to support healing and recovery. Love our city with us! Volunteer, Donate, Connect! www.1justcity.ca Our four outreach ministries (West Broadway, St. Matthew’s-Maryland, Oak Table, North End Stella and Rainbow Ministry) serve those living with addictions, those without a place to call home, or those shunned by others based on race, income and sexual orientation. The need for their presence continues to grow, especially in these times of economic stress. We believe that everyone would like to make their city, their country and their world a better place but just need the right avenue to express their gift. We hope we can help you find that avenue.
