Message to the Community

We take any and all personnel-related concerns seriously and we investigate them in accordance with our policies. This may warrant an internal or an independent third-party investigation, depending on the situation. Recommendations coming out of any investigation are then taken to senior leadership and/or the Board of Directors to determine next steps.

As an organization, we are committed to continually reviewing our policies and procedures to ensure a safe and positive working environment for our staff. Our commitment to Kindness extends not only to those we serve, but also to those who are part of our DI community.

Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre

People aren’t born on the street. Nor do lives have to end there. With help, the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre is where some lives begin.

For more than 50 years, the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre (the DI) has delivered services and supports to people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.Open 365 days a year, twenty-four hours a day, the DI’s emergency shelter can sleep more than 1,000 people nightly and serves approximately 3,000 meals daily.

Each year, more than 10,000 Calgarians experiencing homelessness, marginalization and extreme poverty count on the DI for access to emergency shelter, health services, community resources, permanent supportive housing and affordable housing supports. The DI relies heavily on the kindness of Calgarians to fund its 50+ programs and services.
