Housing Programs

Stable housing continues to be the major factor in overcoming poverty and is essential for good health, child development and personal well-being. A safe living environment helps build social connections and dramatically increases education and employment prospects. We not only help Calgary’s most vulnerable adults and children secure housing, we provide the support they need to maintain it.
