Street Outreach

Our homeless street outreach team goes out to help the homeless population we come across in Calgary. We walk the streets/back-alleys of Calgary, on foot, every Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 5:30 – 9:00 pm. We hand out essentials including food, water, clothing, hygiene, harm reduction supplies, resource guides, and referrals to help individuals experiencing homelessness access resources to end the cycle of homelessness. We all know hope can start with a meal. Sometimes people just need a hand up and some extra support in that advocacy. If you or someone you know is in need please give us a call.
