Vibrant Communities Calgary (VCC) was incorporated on April 15, 2005. VCC works to achieve a substantial and sustained reduction in the number of Calgarians living in poverty.
VCC works to grow the social, economic and political engagement of Calgarians in their community, and believe that everyone has a right to fully participate in their communities.
There are important systemic factors that contribute to poverty, and VCC believes that the whole community has a vital role to play in changing these conditions. Change occurs through engagement, inspiration and action.
VCC values leadership, collaboration, social justice and pragmatism
As of January 1, 2015 VCC became the stewards of Calgary’s community-driven poverty reduction strategy: Enough for All.
We’re always looking to connect with new organizations and passionate individuals who
share our goal of reducing poverty in Calgary. If you’re interested in helping this cause,
we’d love to chat!
