C5 is a formal collaborative of 5 Edmonton agencies: Bent Arrow Traditional Healing Society, Boyle Street Community Services, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, Norwood Child and Family Resource Centre, Terra Centre for Teen Parents.
We give a voice to over 30,000 Edmontonians. Between us we support and empower:
Aboriginal individuals and families, some of the most economically, socially and culturally excluded and marginalized children, youth and adults in our inner city, newcomers, immigrants and refugees, children and their families living in vulnerable situations and teen parents
Collective action in the community
We’ve come together because we share a deep-seated belief: that we can do better for children and families through collaboration in specific initiatives in communities and by working to overcome systemic barriers through social policy change – bringing the voices of the thousands of people we work with to decision making tables
This site tells the story of how C5 came to be, how C5 works, what C5 does, and the future of C5.
