- shift local attitudes towards poverty and community, including ‘us and them’ stances
- build local understanding of poverty
- remove policy and other barriers that keep people in poverty
- assist local citizens to build financial, physical, and social assets
- improve Abbotsford’s economic base
- enhance connections between people
- help all residents to feel included in Abbotsford life

As a collaborative group, Vibrant Abbotsford works with a variety of partners, including all levels of government, social and voluntary organizations, faith-based organizations, local businesses, funders, and the people of Abbotsford.
