Our 115 year old Emergency Family Shelter just received a colourful face-lift courtesy of @vicparkyyc's Façade Improvement Program (FIP) pilot project. The purpose of the FIP is to provide businesses and property owners with financial incentives to improve the exterior appearances of their buildings or shops. A section of the building’s exterior is now decorated with the vibrant Inn from the Cold brand identity.

Happy Mother's Day! This month, we are celebrating all of the incredible moms out there. Gary Nissen has stepped forward once again to pay tribute to his mother Claire, the namesake of this campaign, who was a generous philanthropist and loving woman. Gary will match your donation up to a total of $250,000 and his sister, Karen Zutter, will match up to a total of $100,000. Please help us reach our goal of $700,000 this May.

Please meet Jasmine, a 26 year old mother of two and former Journey House resident. Jasmine’s pathway out of homelessness was rife with ups and downs, but she is on a positive path and full of hope. Visit the link in our bio to hear Jasmine's story.

We're excited to welcome Calgarians to our Emergency Family Shelter today to experience homelessness first-hand.

Wow! What a day. Thank you to Suzanne West and to all of our volunteers and supporters who braved the elements for the 8th annual Steps to End Homelessness. Close to 6,000 sets were done and Suzanne crushed 104 herself! Just over $8,000 in donations with matching and more to come. We are very close to our $30,000 goal.

Happy #NationalVolunteerWeek!
Meet Rachel, our spunky and dedicated IFTC Community Cupboard volunteer. Every week, she organizes the food donations in our pantry, ensuring that all the food is ready to be given out to families who have recently transitioned out of our shelter into their own housing. Community Cupboard is one of the many ways in which the Inn supports families, and we couldn’t do it without volunteers like Rachel!

Nairoby is a Donations Sorting volunteer who is originally from Venezuela and came to Canada only six months ago.  Back in Venezuela she worked in sales and marketing. Her volunteer position really suits her as she loves organizing and being in the basement, organizing items really relaxes her. She decided to volunteer to meet new people and practice her English all while helping others.

Thank you for your commitment to the Inn, Nairoby.
