MCC Manitoba programs
MCC has worked in Manitoba for over 50 years, walking alongside Manitobans to build healthy communities, families and relationships - right here and around the world.
Abuse Response and Prevention
Abuse Response and Prevention is a Canada-wide MCC program addressing interpersonal violence and assisting those in need. MCC Manitoba empowers churches and individuals with resources, support and knowledge for trauma-sensitive responses to abuse.
The Indigenous Neighbours program helps foster healing, friendship and reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Manitobans. We engage in this work through education, advocacy and dialogue.
Migration and resettlement
MCC Manitoba partners with Manitobans to respond to the needs of refugees and displaced people around the world. We promote refugee sponsorship, provide educational resources and advocate for fair legislation.
Migration and resettlement: Welcome the stranger
MCC is excited to be able to partner with you and the Canadian government in the Blended Visa Office Referral (BVOR) refugee sponsorships. Through the BVOR program, a sponsoring group (that’s you!) is matched with a refugee family and commit to providing 12 months of social, emotional, and settlement support*, with half of the costs covered by the Canadian government.
Peacebuilding and advocacy
For MCC, peace is more than a wish. It’s our work. That work spans from workshops about having difficult conversations, to urban-rural dialogue on faith and farming, to advocating for climate justice. Together, we can make a difference.
Kits and comforters
When you send kits and comforters to people who are in the midst of conflict, disaster or poverty, you provide a tangible reminder that their needs matter.
Find out how you can make and send kits that share God’s love with those in need.
Our social enterprises - 16 MCC Thrift shops and Sam's Place coffee shop - are run by dedicated volunteers, participants and staff.
Sam’s Place equips and empowers young people to overcome barriers by bridging the gap toward meaningful employment.
MCC Thrift shops
When you donate, volunteer or shop with MCC Thrift shops, you support relief, development and peace around the world.
Manitoba’s 16 locations thrive with the time and talent of 1,700 volunteers. Last year, our shops contributed $3.2 million to MCC’s work! Join us!
