What People Are Saying
"What the Inn means to me is a safe place to put my head, as I am of an age where I do not mean much to a lot of places. Here I do mean something."
— Former Guest
"We have come a long way and it’s been a journey of many twists and turns for acceptance of the problem of homelessness in Calgary and recognition that together we could make a difference."
— Steff, Founding Board Member & Volunteer
"I held a homeless, 10-day-old baby in my arms during our volunteer Inn at Knox United in the early days. That was it for me! I’ve been a volunteer at my church and at the shelter ever since."
— Dave, volunteer for 14 years & counting
