Dirty. Dangerous. Junkies. Crazy. Lazy. These are just a handful of the inaccurate and damaging stereotypes still held about homeless populations today. The Calgary Drop-In Centre has an emotional and informative experience that opens both the mind and the heart as community members learn about our people and our services.
Tour groups will be shown every floor of our main building, hear stories about our clients, see our programs in action, and have the opportunity to ask every question they can imagine in a safe and judgment free environment. The Calgary Drop-In Centre is passionate about its tour program and believes that the support of the community is required to impact homelessness and support the people affected by it.
Why do people actually become homeless? What is the largest demographic of people experiencing homelessness? What population is most overrepresented? And why? Learn the answers to all of these questions and more on a tour of our main building. The experience is sure to change you.
I think every community should have a place like the Calgary Drop-In Centre. If they did, the world would be a better place.Manisha Ghooi
