YOU can help!

Your donation to The Alex can provide a young mother with access to primary health care, help a senior feel connected over a community meal, or support a neighbour to find mental health and addiction services on their road to recovery.

You make a difference

Your generosity provides primary health & medical care, mental health support, medical equipment on our Health Buses & in our clinics, help us teach cooking skills at our Community Food Centre and help build a sense of safety and resilience for someone who has experienced homelessness.

Making health care accessible for everyone

Our mobile health buses bring wraparound care to those who have challenges accessing or navigating the traditional healthcare system.

Supporting at-risk youth with wraparound care

With physicians, nurses, social
workers, and mental health professionals under one roof, we decrease barriers to care for at-risk youth.

Addressing addiction

Our health centres offer same-day medically-supported addiction counselling, and our street team goes where the need is.

Tackling food insecurity in our community

At our Community Food Centre, people come together to grow, cook, share and advocate for good food.

“Without the Alex’s support, love, friendship, and services I would never have been able to be truly me. They gave me the tools and support to grow.”
