ABOUT OUR CHARITY
Winnipeg Inner City Missions formed in 2003 following an organizational merger between Anishinabe Fellowship Centre (AFC) and Flora House (FH). WICM is committed to serving Aboriginal individuals and families in the inner city. WICM’s mandate is to help provide a safe, nurturing and peaceful atmosphere in which people can begin to achieve their potential and find their way to having adequate food, clothing and a safe place to live being listened to and understood, achieving employment developing physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being.
OUR PROGRAMS & SERVICES
We operate in three Buildings and have been an integral part of our neighborhood for 45 years.
Flora House: The North End of Winnipeg is a challenging environment for families trying to raise their children to stay out of gangs and away from drugs, alcohol and negative influences. At Flora House emphasis is placed on creating a safe place in the community, where the special needs of children and youth (6-14 years of age) are nurtured and supported.
Anishinabe Place of Hope: This is where our offices are located and church meetings take place. At Place of Hope we operate a First Steps to Employment project (employment readiness) for adults (30-50 years of age) who have made a commitment to change the direction of their lives. Successful candidates reside in one of 19 transitional housing units. We help residents achieve wholesome and productive lifestyles and develop skills leading to employment.
Anishinabe Fellowship Centre: (Miracle Store) We operate a thrift store.

"Now it’s three years since I’ve been part of this church. In these three years, I’ve become a member. I’ve gone to family camp in the summer time. My daughter and I will be part of the summer employment team at Flora House. It’s been life-changing for me."
— Shannon Meaniss
"It’s not a judgmental place. They don’t care about outward appearance. They care about inward healing. All are welcome, all belong."
— Karen Utech (elected elder at the Place of Hope and volunteer)
