Home for the Holidays

We believe we can end child and family homelessness. You can help.

Support our holiday campaign, and give a family the gift of safety and home this season.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are here. 
We are asking Calgarians to make a donation this holiday season to help raise $2,000,000 to cover costs incurred by the increased demand for emergency shelter services in 2018. We are on a mission to end homelessness for children and their families and we cannot achieve this mission without the support of each of you. Together we can ensure children have the safety and security of home this season.

Adopt-a-Family 2018

Give a family the gift of hope this holiday season. There are over 120 families in need of support this holiday season. Adopt-a-Family and make this holiday special for a family experiencing homelessness or a vulnerable family in our community.

INNformation Report Series: Immigrant Homelessness

20% of families served at Inn from the Cold identify as new Canadians. We are curious as to why this number has remained the same for the last few years. Find out more, over the next few weeks we will be interviewing agencies and releasing a new INNformation Report.

You can help put food on the table at the Inn by sponsoring a snack, lunch, dinner, dessert or even milk. Did you know that children and families staying that the Inn drink approximately 200L of milk each week?

Winter Boots Needed!

With the recent snowfall, we are in critical need of winter boots in teen and adult sizes for all genders. Of course, all sizes are appreciated!

Cold weather and snow are uncomfortable for all of us but can be life-threatening for vulnerable members of our community so please help us prepare for winter and protect someone today.

All donations can be dropped off at our Emergency Family Shelter located at #106, 110-11th Ave SE.

Please contact Cindy at 403-999-7452 or with any questions.
