We have been transforming the lives of vulnerable families in Calgary since 1997. We believe a community where no child or family is homeless is possible.

You can help make this a reality.

Project Thrive

In 2022, Inn from the Cold will be moving into a new purpose-built shelter through an innovative partnership with HomeSpace. We invite you to learn more about this exciting and transformational project and how you can get involved.

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 doesn’t 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 & decrease the possibility of a housing crisis in the future. Contact us today.

Land Acknowledgement

In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.

This sacred gathering place provides us with an opportunity to engage in and demonstrate leadership on reconciliation. Thank you for your enthusiasm and commitment to join our team on the lands of Treaty 7 territory.
