Need immediate help, housing help or assistance with other supports and programs? If you are a family in need, reach out and we can get started.

VOLUNTEER

Volunteers are active on the frontlines and behind the scenes at Inn from the Cold. Whether youre looking for a long-term or short-term commitment, enjoy working with children, rolling up your sleeves in the kitchen or prefer the allure of special events, Inn from the Cold has a place for you.

Land Acknowledgement

Inn from the Cold’s commitment to reconciliation starts with acknowledging our immense honour and privilege of living and working within the Treaty 7 region.

We recognize that the Blackfoot name of this place, where the Bow River meets the Elbow River, is Mohkinstsis (MOH-kin-stiss) which we now call the city of Calgary. The Îethka Nakoda Wîcastabi (ee-YETH’-kah nah-COH’-dah WHISK’-ah-tah-bay) First Nations refer to this place as Wicispa Oyade (weh-CHIS’-spa oh-YAH’-day) and the people of the Tsuut’ina (Soot-tenna) nation call it Guts-ists-I (GOOT’-sis). The Métis call the Calgary area Otos-kwunee (oh-TUSS’ – kwanee).

We would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the traditional and ancestral territory and oral practices of the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta. This includes: the Blackfoot Confederacy, made up of the Siksika (Seeg-see-kah), Piikani (Pee-gah-nee), and Kainai (G-ai-nah) First Nations; the Iyarhe (Stoney) Nakoda (ee-YAR-hee NAH-coda) First Nations, comprised of the Chiniki (Chin-ick-ee), Bearspaw, and Goodstoney First Nations; and the Tsuutina (Soot-tenna) First Nation. The city of Calgary is also homeland to the historic Northwest Métis and to the Otipemisiwak (Oti-pe-MES-se-wa) Métis Government, Métis Nation Battle River Territory (Nose Hill Métis District 5 and Elbow Métis District 6).

We acknowledge all the many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit whose footsteps have marked these lands for centuries.

Help For Families

Is your family facing a housing crisis? Get help with finding affordable housing, access to social support services, and temporary emergency shelter if needed. We are here to support you 24/7. A temporary family crisis doesnt have to lead to homelessness. We have many programs to support you wherever you are in your housing journey. If you get help early, we can help you stay in your home and decrease the possibility of a housing crisis in the future. Contact us today.
