Our mission is to provide a safe and caring environment for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other drug dependencies. We seek to provide hope and service through the promotion of well-being through our programs: Shelter, Detox, Outreach, Housing, Encampment and Volunteer.
About CALGARY ALPHA HOUSE SOCIETY
The Calgary Alpha House Society was formed in 1981 as a committed response to a marginalized population of men and women who were alcohol and or other drug addicted and living vulnerable on the streets of Calgary.
We opened the Alpha House Shelter on January 18, 1982 at its Victoria Park location and we were seen from day one by many as a safe haven and alternate to city cells for those affected.
Our continuum of programs help connect with individuals facing addictions at a variety of levels such as outreach programs, a shelter program, a detox program and a housing program with case management support. The volunteer program focus includes corporate and individual support.
