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.

The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre Society is a community of kindness, focused on providing more than 50 programs and services to Calgarians experiencing homelessness, marginalization and extreme poverty.

Serving Calgary for more than 50 years, we are the largest organization of its kind in North America. The Calgary Drop-In offers a complete range of wrap-around community supports – from meals and shelter, to clothing, medical services, counseling, volunteer opportunities, education, permanent supportive housing, and more – to over 10,000 people each year.

Orange Brunch 2017

Orange Brunch 2017

We are celebrating another year of kindness, generosity, and wonderful community partnerships. Please join us at the 21st Annual Orange Brunch — Volunteer & Donor Appreciation Banquet.

Together, we will enjoy a delicious meal as we reflect on the incredible year that was.

We will recognize those men, and organizations whose selfless contributions have improved the lives of Calgarians affected by homelessness and poverty. Most importantly, though, we hope to inspire you to keep doing those monumental things you’re doing to make this city the best place in the world to live.

Space will be limited, so please RSVP to reserve your seat today!
