Help end homelessness in Alberta.
Alberta is in the midst of a housing crisis. In Calgary alone, more than 2,900 people are experiencing homelessness.1 In Edmonton, an estimated 1,900 people are experiencing homelessness, and close to 700 people live in emergency shelters.2 As COVID-19 and the economic fallout make matters worse, more Albertans are expected to face the grim reality of eviction after job loss.
You can help shelter vulnerable Albertans experiencing homelessness or precarious housing. Your gift to the Housing for All in Alberta Fund will support emergency shelters, transitional housing, affordable housing initiatives, and contribute to long-term solutions. You will also support advocacy efforts and other support services for people experiencing homelessness.
Your donation will be pooled with donations from other generous Canadians to help achieve wide-reaching effects and make an even bigger impact. Plus, get an official charitable tax receipt. Give today!
What makes up the Housing for All in Alberta Fund?
The Housing for All in Alberta Fund by CanadaHelps includes over 50 registered charities who are leading efforts to end homelessness in Alberta.
The charities in this Fund are selected through an algorithmic approach, taking the charity’s area of focus, mission, and description into account. This Fund includes emergency shelters, transitional housing, affordable housing for seniors, women’s shelters, shelters supporting youth, and more.
To ensure donations reach charities easily and efficiently, charities must be one of the more than 20,000 charities registered to receive funds electronically from CanadaHelps. Funds will be transferred quarterly, subject to a minimum of $10 per charity. We regularly update the list of charities in this Fund.
