Eva Fox is a Family Support Worker, working at our Intake desk. But the most important part of her role at Inn from the Cold is the close relationships she forms with families staying at our Emergency Family Shelter. She has been working at the Inn for just over two years and in that time, her compassion and strength have helped many families in crisis.
She is the first point of contact for families walking through our shelter doors and their first feeling of safety and security from the crisis they are escaping. Eva and the Family Support Workers are the staff members whom families closely interact with during their stay at our shelter. They work 24/7 to ensure children and their families feel supported to begin a path towards healing. When you make a donation to Claire’s Campaign, it is individuals like Eva who you are gifting to families in crisis. Read more about Claire’s Campaign here.
This year, Claire’s Campaign comes in a time of incredible demand. We have seen large spikes in the number of families in crisis, with a 37% jump in the average number of families we are serving per night. Our days at or over capacity have seen a 300% increase from this time last year. Your donation is needed now more than ever.
During the month of May, your donation will be matched by incredible Calgary philanthropists Gary Nissen, Karen Zutter and the Hutchinson Family. Double your impact and donate today.
