Raising Social Service Standards in America
The Canby Center has an innovative approach to social services that emphasizes dignity and relationship over quick, cash-based solutions to poverty. Our mission, to renew dignity and inspire learning, goes beyond providing youth and families with just a handout. We are dedicated to giving families a "hand-up" by walking in relationship with those we serve.
How We Raise the Standard
"The Canby Center was my saving grace. I was in a bad situation when I started going there. But the stability and people there meant so much to me. It was the only place I met such good people, people who cared. The center did so much for me; they were like my family."
