We provide a safe place for families and individuals to stay until they are able to make a ‘next-step’.
Our Shelter is a large family type residential facility that can accommodate up to 25 people (adults and children) in seven bedrooms. Families stay together in their own bedroom for one night up to three weeks. They plan and make their meals in the kitchen, are offered counselling, support, and referrals. If we are full, we will do our best to help families find another safe place.
Child and youth care are provided by staff six days a week. Small groups are offered on safety planning, managing stress, self-esteem and positive parenting. Activities such as drumming, massage, healing circles, and music therapy have also been provided.
Primary funding for our Shelter programs are provided by Alberta Ministry of Human Services and Calgary and Area Child and Family Services
Child and Youth Care Program
Our Child and Youth Program supports parents in addressing the physical and emotional needs of the family during their stay in the Shelter, while supplying a safe place for children and youth to express themselves freely and have fun.
