Enough for All Strategy

The work of the strategy may look complex and sometimes it is, but it’s our job to help untangle the complexity and work with others toward clarity, finding ways to shape how we all work together to end poverty in our city.


  • Vision

    We live in a community where there is enough for all.

  • Mission

    We will create opportunities to align and leverage the work of hundreds of organizations and thousands of Calgarians to reduce poverty in our city.

  • Principles

    Promoting shared leadership

    Engaging voices of people with lived experience in poverty

    Focusing on dignity of all

    Increasing multi-sectoral engagement

    Employing trauma-informed approaches

    Mobilizing awareness and empathy of inter-generational trauma

    Reducing racism and discrimination and promoting diversity in our practices

    Offering relevant, accessible and timely services and supports
