About Us

Bissell Centre

Through our vision to eliminate poverty in our community, and guided by a passionate concern for the dignity and well-being of each individual, Bissell Centre’s work is based on building relationships, hope, and trust.

Our mission is to work with communities to empower people to move from poverty to cultural, social and economic prosperity. We enable people to meet their own basic daily needs, participate in community, have sustainable livelihoods, feel hope for the future, and make plans for a prosperous life.
