Supporting people impacted by systemic barriers
WHO WE ARE
SEIA is a community-based organization that provides service and support through internal programs and external partnerships so that all persons impacted by systemic barriers are able to access the services, supports and benefits to which they are entitled regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, income, education, or family status and, as a result, experience enhanced health, well-being and social inclusion.
NEWS AND EVENTS
"Let's reopen the SEIA warming center! We hope to make this possible with your generous support.
Throughout March and April of 2021 more than 800 clients accessed the center and its services. Open from 10 am - 12 noon and again from 1 - 4pm, the space is much more than a warming center. Clients can wash and dry blankets, access washrooms, a computer, and a phone, charge their phone, rest, grab a hygiene kit, clothing and small household items, a meal and drink, even receive legal, tenancy and crisis information and advocacy.
These services and the support of dedicated SEIA staff and volunteers have helped raise spirits, provide opportunities, meet basic needs and save lives.
We are raising money to extend the rent agreement and continue offering the critical services of the SEIA Warming Center. Any donation will help make an impact. Thank you in advance for your contribution, it means so much to so many people."
