Claire Pearen

Founder

Claire is an activist, and a helper that is loved by all that meet her. She is a vibrant force of nature that puts others before herself and makes sure that our unhoused community is well cared for.  Energetic, compassionate and strong, she is a recognized face on the streets of Edmonton.

Claire is also the founder of Pride Corner. You will see her out every Friday making the corner on Whyte avenue a safe space for the LGBTQ2AI+ community.

Rebecca Reid

Founder

With her smile and her great big heart, Rebecca hits the street with the rest of her #wagonfam to bring some comfort to those living rough on the streets of Edmonton.


Rebecca is also a proud descendant of the Kahkewistahaw Cree First Nation, and a singer and drummer for Chubby Cree.


Having lost her niece to a drug poisoning, she is very passionate about Harm Reduction. Rebecca teaches Naloxone Administration in her spare time.

Rebecca is trained in Studio III Low Arousal Non-Violent Crisis Intervention, a certificated approach that is Human-Rights based, as well as Trauma-Informed Care. Rebecca is also a trained Bio-hazard Remediation Technician which means she has training in blood-borne pathogens and cross contamination.


One bottle of water may not change the world, but it may make all the difference to that one person's day.
