Sidewalks to Door Locks evokes powerful imagery of the journey that a person experiencing homelessness takes.
It is the story of our sector.
A sidewalk can take us many places, but at the very least, it should always lead us home-a place where we can lock the door and feel safe.
The Sidewalks to Door Locks event will bring together over 500 members of Calgary’s social serving agencies, business, cultural and philanthropic communities for an evening showcasing the work of our sector, celebrating collaboration, while also raising public awareness to key issues affecting homelessness in our city. The occasion will be punctuated by the presentation of the Art Smith Award, presented by CHF to a deserving frontline agency employee together with an innovative community project, meant to recognize the support and dedication they have provided to individuals experiencing homelessness in Calgary. The evening will also include special public awareness and artistic elements to enhance the guest experience and make this event a memorable one!
