The focus of both UP and CFS is serving the most vulnerable, especially those who are vulnerable because they are poor. Poverty is complex. Often people who experience poverty are also isolated, lack resources to address problems, experience mental health issues, abuse and domestic violence, and get “stuck” in poverty because of low levels of education. All of these stress factors create countless challenges for coping with daily life. Inclusive of all faiths and cultures, UP is actively pursuing innovative and high impact solutions to some of Calgary's most complex problems.
