The Champion’s Centre Inc. is a Canadian not-for-profit Christian charity organization that provides permanent low-income housing to the disadvantaged and homeless. The Champion’s Centre offers room and board to between 12 and 18 tenants with basic amenities, while also operating a café and antique shop at the same location. The café and antique shop generate a source of income for the centre in addition to donations and fund-raising. The goal of The Champion’s Centre is to encourage people who struggle to live independently to reintegrate back into society primarily by providing a setting where tenants can experience a meaningful sense of community affiliation. The Champion’s Centre was originally conceived of as supportive housing by minister Klaas Klooster who is the Executive Director of the organization. The first centre was founded in the town of Ponoka, Alberta, Canada, and opened in June 2002. A second centre opened in Medicine Hat, Alberta, in June 2006 and a third centre, also in Medicine Hat, is now under construction. Though the centre is a Christian charity it is run inter-denominationally.
