Our Free Goods Program is Back! The Free Goods Program is fueled by community donations. These donated items are then are 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.

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.
