Calgary Homeless Foundation is the centralized planner for the homeless-serving agencies in the city, collectively known as the Homeless-Serving System of Care. We directly administer services and programs that help people experiencing homelessness.
While we do not provide or supply housing, we are responsible for supporting the agencies that do. We guide the fight against homelessness by building a strong system where people have timely access to the right housing and resources at the right time.
That means we use research and data to coordinate agencies and to help them find innovative solutions for Albertans at risk of or experiencing homelessness. We also serve as a steward of government and private funding, allocating resources in a cost-effective way to provide a full spectrum of services, solutions, and permanent housing for all Calgarians.
Since 2008, we have housed over 10,000 people in Calgary through our unique blend of system coordination, research and data, and responsible funding allocation.
