National Philanthropy Day Luncheon

Congratulations Stikeman Elliott and Suzanne West


On Tuesday, November 15th we celebrated the 20th Anniversary of AFP Calgary's National Philanthropy Day, recognizing all those incredible individuals and businesses in our community who are making a difference.

It was truly an honor to spend the day with our outstanding supporters and Generosity of Spirit Award nominees Stikeman Elliott, who was the recipient of the Corporate Philanthropist Award, and Suzanne West, who was the recipient of the Doc Seaman Individual Philanthropist Award.

We are so proud of all the honorees at Tuesday's luncheon. Calgary's philanthropic spirit is stronger than ever.

Housing with Intensive Supports

A look beyond our Emergency Family Shelter


When guests exit shelter, they often require a helping hand as they settle into their new home. Our Housing with Intensive Supports (HIS) program provides that help, offering case management to 20 families for up to two years and connecting those families with the community supports they need. The program does offer rent subsidies, although we are so proud to say that most of our families are currently able to pay their own bills.

Recently, we had a guest graduate from the HIS program and no longer requires our support to live independently. The young mom has also graduated high school at the top of her class, has found stable employment, and is waiting to be accepted into post-secondary. We love seeing our guests succeed. 
 

Please consider joining the Inn Crowd, our monthly giving program.

When you are part of the Inn Crowd, giving is more convenient for you, your donations will make a regular, compounded impact and you will enjoy special perks that come along with being part of the Inn Crowd. Monthly donations help us achieve our mission and vision through consistent, sustainable support. Please email inncrowd@innfromthecold.org for more information or click here to join now.
