About Our Charity

JustWork emerged from the life and ministry of Grandview Calvary Baptist Church in the Grandview-Woodlands neighbourhood of Vancouver, BC.

JustWork officially began in February 2004, and since 2005 we have focused most of our time and energy on the development of social enterprises. We have sensed a particular call to assist those in our midst facing the most daunting challenges to finding work. Because individuals need something more than what is offered by typical employment programs, social enterprises seem to be the best tool available to us for this task.

We currently operate three social enterprises: one in functional ceramics (JustPotters), one for catering (JustCatering), and another one in painting and renovation services (JustRenos).
