A look back - 2016 in numbers

2016 was a challenging year for homeless children and their families in Calgary. Because of you, we were able to offer shelter, sanctuary and healing to help them achieve independence. Stay tuned for our full 2016 Report to Community to be released in February.

A look ahead - Inn from the Cold celebrates 20th anniversary

20 years ago, a small group of concerned Calgarians took to the streets to help those in need. Unfortunately the need to support homeless children and their families in our city still exists and we are all here for them. We are proud to have been serving our community for 20 years. Stay tuned for news on 20th anniversary special events and campaigns and thank you for your continued support.

Meet Kylie, Family Facilitator

Kylie has been a Family Facilitator since April of 2015. She was one of the pioneer volunteers at our Knox Overflow Shelter, and now volunteers at our Emergency Family Shelter for Game On!, a regularly programmed activity for our young guests.
Kylie says that the most enjoyable part of volunteering is getting to meet the kids, and simply creating time for them to play; she notes how impressed she continues to be with their resilience and positivity. Kylie says it is a privilege to be a part of the Inn and the work that we do, but we are equally blessed to have a volunteer who is so spirited, kind and thoughtful working with our youngest guests.
