We are on the path to ending chronic homelessness while alleviating the effects of poverty.
The Calgary Drop-In Centre (the DI) is more than emergency shelter. The DI provides essential care -- including housing supports, health services, and employment training -- to people who need help. Our programs and services connect people to permanent housing that meets their individual needs.
We provide 24/7 low-barrier, emergency shelter and health services.
We own and operate mixed-market affordable housing.
We engage and educate the community about how to help.
We provide skills training and employment placement.
We provide services to help people move into their own homes.
