Our History

The Neighbour Centre is an establishment of the Edmonton Do Likewise Society – a Christian charitable organization founded in 2009 to provide mercy and love, in practical ways, to disadvantaged, discouraged and oppressed neighbours.

The Society was founded by several churches who, prior to opening the Centre, worked together for nearly a decade – providing food, clothing, advocacy, and, at times, educational and outreach programs to the marginalized neighbours in the Old Strathcona community.

Eventually, these churches, and a committee of volunteers, raised the resources necessary to lease, renovate and launch The Neighbour Centre, which opened its doors in November 2012, to address the needs of neighbours experiencing homelessness and poverty.
