Our Encampment team works within Calgary to connect with those roughlseeping to try to get them into housing. There was a recent article in the Calgary Herald who spend time with the CPS Marine Unit who referred to work of the Encampment Team. If you come across a camp site or know of someone sleeping outside then please contact Encampment 403-805-7388.

We wanted to share that the Alberta Government has announced that you can now get Naloxone kits for free at pharmacies across Alberta without a prescription. They are also putting in 3 million dollars into Opiate Dependency Programs. We have Naloxone kits in all our programs at Alpha House and have over 45 staff trained to administer it.

Thank you to the Real Estate Council of Alberta for the great hampers that we can provide for our clients when they move into their new place. The photo is how we surprised a new person last week with the great gifts.

We are excited to announce that Alpha House received $250k from the CHBA – UDI Calgary Region Association towards our women’s building. This is a building we want to develop for vulnerable females experiencing homelessness. We are working towards this lofty goal through the the Resolve campaign. We were presented this cheque at the SAM awards this past Saturday evening. Thank you CHBA!
