Despite the pandemic, since March 2020, 543 individuals and families have been successfully diverted away from homelessness and 1,097 have moved into housing. Thanks to the community’s dedicated efforts, 1,640 individuals and families in Calgary are no longer experiencing homelessness.
Since October 2020, Calgary Homeless Foundation and developer HomeSpace Society have opened three new buildings with supports. The James House, The Triveri House, and Legacy on 5th is now home to a combined total of 139 people, including formerly homeless youth, formerly homeless adults, individuals with autism or cognitive challenges, and vulnerable seniors.
Our Collective Impact
Thanks to our collective work within Calgary’s Homeless-Serving System of Care, we’ve achieved an over 85% housing retention rate in our programs.
We’ve implemented the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) – Canada’s most comprehensive database on homelessness.
We’ve housed over 10,000 people since 2008.
Over the past decade more than 715 housing units have been built specifically for individuals who need them.
