Together A Village Can End Family Homelessness

In a city like Calgary, homelessness can feel like a problem that’s too big for one individual to tackle alone. And you’d be right – but a village can.

A village can provide a nurturing environment for children to grow, learn and thrive. A village can provide emotional support to an isolated mother. A village can give a father a place to turn to in his darkest hours. A village can be the difference between homelessness and hopefulness.

That’s why we need your help in making Inn from the Cold’s matching campaign —  A Village Can — the biggest yet. Inn from the Cold has seen a surge in demand, with more families reaching out for help. With demand continuing to rise as many people struggle under a rising cost of living, your support is needed now more than ever.

A group of generous donors will match all donations made by Sunday, June 9. This means your donation will have twice the impact!

Gifts In-Kind

At this time, Inn from the Cold has to pause the donations of physical goods and items. We are grateful that you have considered us for your donation. We ask that you please consider donating your physical goods to the Drop-In Centre’s Free Goods Program,  or Women In Need Society, as we partner with these organizations so the families at The Inn will still be able to benefit.

If you are looking to donate items, as a way of support, we are always in need of gift cards for our families,  and we will occasionally put out calls for critical needs like diapers or formula on our social media.  At this time, we do have a need for new Winter Gear (boots and jackets). Please follow us on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook to stay up-to-date on our urgent needs.


Spread the word!

Our greatest resource is you — our dedicated community of supporters. Tell your friends, family and colleagues about the important work of Inn from the Cold and what we are doing to help end family homelessness in Calgary.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Youtube, then spread the word.
