How We Help

In a world that insists on holding our clients down, we’re here to help them up.

Our mission is to create thriving and prosperous communities, within and outside the walls of our organization. And we do that by providing shelter, housing, and wrap-around supports to Calgary’s most vulnerable people — those experiencing homelessness and those struggling through extreme poverty.

With more than 50 different programs and services, we strive to meet people wherever they are, and help them get to wherever it is they want to go. Whether that means a couple of meals and a place to sleep at night, finding access to much needed government assistance, or a goal to find permanent supportive housing, the Calgary Drop-In Centre is where many lives begin.
