Boyle Street Community Services
Boyle Street Community Services’ mission is to “build and provide community support for people with multiple barriers to community inclusion.” Founded in 1971 with the support of the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities, Boyle Street started as a street-front agency called the “Co-op” in Edmonton’s inner city. Since then, through assertive outreach, client-centered case management, and hands-on problem solving, Boyle Street has helped many marginalized and high-risk people meet basic needs, develop skills, and engage with the community.

Boyle Street Aboriginal Services (BSAS) is a recently incorporated non-profit Aboriginal organization that works closely with Boyle Street Community Services (Boyle Street) to provide and enhance cultural and community development services to Aboriginals and their families who are living on the street or in poverty in Edmonton. Over 70% of the clients that Boyle Street serves are Aboriginal. Consequently, Aboriginal staff took the initiative to make Boyle Street’s Aboriginal programming more explicit. BSAS and Boyle Street are separate entities that work closely to ensure that Aboriginal people continue to receive culturally appropriate services and enhanced services as efforts are more targeted towards the needs of Aboriginal people.
