A non-profit centre in Edmonton is helping people find a place to live – and at the same time giving them a chance to work.

Finding a safe place to live, and work can both be a challenge for vulnerable people.

“We developed Redemptive Developments as a way to create social enterprise and employment for people that were in our housing program,” said Redemptive Developments Supervisor Myra Seeseequon. We work with men and women who have experienced chronic homelessness and we find them housing, and then find them employment.”
