The Jasper Place Wellness Centre has been serving West Edmonton since 2006. In the beginning, we worked mainly as an emergency service provider for individuals experiencing homelessness. However, as you know, communities and neighbourhoods change as time goes on, and the same has been true with the work we do.
Today, we work with west Edmonton community members and other community-focused organizations to provide programs and services that help make the neighbourhoods we serve healthier places to live. Currently, our main focuses are primary health care, employment, food security, and affordable housing.
Through these focuses, we hope to build a sense of community and find solutions issues that impact neighbourhoods like ours.
Because of COVID-19, much of what we do has been on hold to ensure that we do our part in keeping community members safe and healthy. We have had to work swiftly to convert programs like Food4Good, that typically host low-cost fruit and veggie markets, to providing emergency food hampers to individuals and families needing a little extra help to get through the pandemic.
If you know of someone who could benefit from this program, please have them register at www.jpwc.ca
Our Community Health Centre’s medical clinic located at 15626 100A Avenue is still open, and many appointments are completed by phone for ease of our patients. Our clinic has a focus on complex care that addresses primary health needs, along with behavioural and social challenges.
