For more than 60 years, the Calgary Drop-In Centre (the DI) has been more than an emergency shelter. We provide essential care as well as health services and housing support to adults experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. Their programs and services connect people to permanent housing that meets their individual needs.

Rooted in community and fueled by kindness, the DI proudly serves as part of the Homeless-Serving System of Care, the Canadian Shelter Transformation Network, and they are in full support of the Canadian Alliance to End Homelessness initiative, Recovery For All.

Their mission is to welcome adults at risk of or experiencing homelessness. Working collaboratively, they provide access to a spectrum of care that supports each person’s transition to the most independent living possible—including emergency shelter, programs and services, and affordable and supported housing. Their vision is a community where everyone can find their home.

Again, this was part of our internal team holiday initiative and we donated another 1000 pairs of socks to the local Calgary branch! Lots of smiles and joy when the mismatched socks arrived right in time for the cold weather!
