Our Mission

To provide affordable housing and a nurturing community where young families can learn and grow.


Highbanks provides a place to live. Safe. Stable. Affordable. Highbanks provides a nurturing environment by offering peer and community support. Highbanks promotes continuing education by ensuring all clients are enrolled in school and complete their high school diploma. Highbanks focuses on developing life and parenting skills through a collaborative program designed to help families become independent.

Young mothers and their children are especially vulnerable to the cycle of poverty and homelessness. By providing housing and support, Highbanks assists in stopping this cycle and helps young mothers to reach their full potential. 

Our goal is for our clients to leave Highbanks as educated, confident & self-sufficient parents raising healthy, happy children.

By supporting Highbanks, you can provide hope to a young mother and her child where there was none before.

Funds raised will used to support 10 families with housing, and program support. For further information please contact us at 403.521.0082. Our address is 317 19th St NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N 2J2 and we are incorporated in Alberta, Canada.
