This gentleman is one of the many clients of Martyshuk housing.
During one of my many trips to Edmonton, I got to collaborate with the amazing people of Martyshuk Housing.
"Amazing" is actually quite the understatement when you consider what they do:
Martyshuk Housing is a grassroots company with a social mandate to abolish homelessness. Since 2007, they use highly innovative and flexible approaches to provide quality affordable housing and tailored supports to their clients. Their unique business model has effectively housed hundreds of some of the hardest-to-house homeless individuals in Edmonton.
Martyshuk is known for:
♦ Ensuring safe, secure, and clean housing throughout Edmonton.
♦ Responding quickly to house people within hours and days of receiving a referral.
♦ Approaching all clients on and case-by-case basis.
♦ Working without judgment.
♦ Treating people as equals and with unparalleled respect.
♦ Giving people a chance when other programs haven’t.
♦ Having a unique model that is producing results.
Amongst the numerous clients I’ve had lately, Martyshuk is by far one of the most humbling for me. It’s amazing to see people who genuinely care about other human beings, and doing everything in their power to get them out of the streets. Specially when you know how cold Alberta gets in the winter. Nobody should sleep outside by -35°c.
