We are passionate about guiding the fight against homelessness.
We allocate resources for highest impact and outcomes, build knowledge and understanding, and galvanize public and political will to ensure people have the right housing and supports at the right time. Read our annual report for more information, and discover how we are funded and who we fund to accomplish this work.
Calgary Homeless Foundation was created in 1998 by our visionary founder Art Smith.
A decade later, we implemented the 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness—the first of its kind in Canada, resulting in nearly 10,000 people housed.
Today, we continue to guide the fight against homelessness, synchronizing the efforts of governments, agencies, and community to create an integrated system of care for people experiencing homelessness.
