Welcome to Edmonton John Howard Society | Supportive Housing in Edmonton

Who we are

Edmonton John Howard Society is more than a service provider. To our clients, we are the family many of them never had. People come to us when the world doesn’t seem to welcome them or when the path forward is hidden by fear, self-doubt and closed doors. Our door is always open. Just like a family, we provide a home to some and safe shelter to all. We listen, we care, we reach out and we support. We celebrate with our clients when they succeed and we welcome them back when they stumble.

Who we serve

At Edmonton John Howard Society, we serve young people without support systems, people impacted by family violence, and men and women at risk or involved with the justice system. All find a warm welcome and the help they need to discover hope in their lives. We also work to build understanding about the causes and consequences of crime and to prevent crime in our communities through public education.

What we offer

At Edmonton John Howard Society, we offer hope and opportunities through a variety of practical services and innovative programs:

  • Housing and help finding housing
  • Help finding employment
  • Help finding other community services
  • Supportive services
  • Anger management courses
  • Public Legal Education programs for schools and community groups
  • Financial Literacy Courses at the New Edmonton Remand Centre
  • Housing for youth experiencing homelessness
  • Services for individuals involved in domestic violence
How we work

We are here to help. Call us, email us or drop by our office to get started. Our door is open, Monday to Friday, 8:30 – 4:30 (closed from noon – 1:00 p.m. daily), and email and phone messages are returned as soon as possible. Our friendly staff and volunteers are waiting to welcome you.
