Biographical history

The North End Community Ministry was a ministry of the Winnipeg Presbytery. Its predecessors were Stella Mission and People Acting on Concerns Together (PACT). It was located at 470 Stella Avenue in Winnipeg from 1978 to 1993. With funding from Winnipeg Presbytery and Core Area Initiative Program, the building of Stella Mission was renovated making NECM more accessible for community use. NECM continued to provide direct services to the community, such as a clothing depot, food distribution, supervised Drop – In for children aged 5 – 12 years including full day programmes in the summer, supervision for youth workers, crises counselling and educational programmes such as literacy, budget skills, nutrition and cooking. The Housing Concerns group taught low income families the responsibilities and rights of tenants. The indirect services included informational/ educational visits to United Church congregations and community groups addressing justice issues, emergency food programmes, support services for the victims of abuse, slide presentations and tours of NECM. Due to lack of funds and cohesion among the workers, on June 30, 1993 the staff was terminated, and a review of the ministry concluded that restructuring was necessary. Currently known as the Northend Stella Community Ministry, it remains an outreach ministry sponsored by Winnipeg Presbytery.
