Our areas of action
At Centraide, our mission is to fight poverty and social exclusion by acting on the factors that are most likely to bring about lasting and significant change in people’s lives.
To ensure your donations change lives for life, Centraide supports a vast network of agencies that work in four areas of action: support youth success, take care of the essentials for families, break social isolation and build caring communities.
Support youth success
Get young people on the road to success to break the cycle of poverty and social exclusion.
Take care of the essentials
Help young and old access adequate food and housing.
Break social isolation
Make sure that everyone can fully participate and contribute in society, no matter what their age, sex, origin or abilities.
Build caring communities
Unite the strengths of residents and agencies so that together they can improve the living conditions in their neighbourhoods.
