Our Free Goods Program is Back! The Free Goods Program is fuelled by community donations. These donated items are then provided to Calgarians who don’t otherwise have access to furniture and household goods.
Supported by the Calgary Homeless Foundation, we work with housing-first agencies in Calgary to ensure everyone can make their house a home.
We kindly ask that all donations (except for food) are please brought to our Donation Centre, located at 3640 11a Street NE.

More than emergency shelter.
The Calgary Drop-In Centre (the DI) is more than an emergency shelter. We provide essential care as well as health services, employment training, and housing supports to people who need help. Our programs and services connect people to permanent housing that meets their individual needs.
Rooted in community and fueled by kindness, the DI proudly serves as part of the Homeless-Serving System of Care.
We believe in empowering people to move forward and find home — watch “Chuck’s Story” to learn more.
Every dollar we raise goes to our mission of ending and preventing chronic homelessness and alleviating the effects of poverty.
