Boyle Street’s Drop-in Centre is located in the agency’s main offices at 10116 – 105 Avenue. The Drop-in provides a safe, welcoming and comfortable space for people to visit and access a variety of services, including meals, recreation, and support. For many, the Drop-in is a starting point, as well as a place for coffee and companionship. During peak times, when winter is at its coldest, we see an average of 500 people come through our doors daily, and all are welcome.
At Boyle Street Community Services we meet people where they are at. That means building a relationship with our clients, getting to know who they are, and what challenges they face. We believe that by starting with an honest conversation we are best able to provide the services and programs our clients need, in a way that is done with integrity and dignity. Once we have built a relationship with our clients we are better able to guide them as they access our over 40 programs and services and address the lifestyle changes they would like to make at their own pace
From working with pregnant women living on the street to providing group care for children with Child and Family Services involvement to securing long term care for seniors, Boyle Street walks alongside our clients through every phase of life. Our diversity of programming and expertise allows us to provide exemplary support as our clients take steps to break the cycle of poverty regardless of their stage in life.

Well done people."
