National Housing Strategy

On November 22, the first National Housing Strategy was released and this is an important step forward for all Canadians. A 50% reduction in chronic homelessness is important – we can end child and family homelessness with the same kind of focus. We are hoping the expanded and reformed federal homelessness programming will focus on ending child and family homelessness. To end homelessness in the future, we must end it for children today.

Sunterra's #LuckyStarsCookie Campaign

Throughout the month of December, Sunterra Market is generously donating 50% of proceeds from the #LuckyStarsCookie to Inn from the Cold in Calgary. Thank you to Sunterra Market, Lucky Stars Cookies will be available at all Sunterra locations until December 31st.
Tim is one of the Inn's most valued volunteers and donates his time as a valued meal host and with office administration support. We had chat with Tim about why he volunteers with the Inn and what he loves about it. Thank you Tim! 

Q: Why did you decide to volunteer with the Inn?
Tim: Access to food, clean water, shelter and safety should be more universal; especially for minors. I also was impressed by how well the Inn ran in 2004 when I helped my mom volunteer at St. Anthony’s Church. Today it is a much different scale of operation, but the same standard of care is still being taken.

Q: What do you like most about volunteering with the Inn?
Tim: I really enjoy being able to meet people that work and volunteer at the Inn, but also being able to help those in our city who desperately are in need of good assistance.
