Alpha House Society is a non-profit, charitable agency providing safe and caring environments for individuals whose lives are affected by alcohol and other substance dependencies

Who We Help

Our work is a direct intersection of homelessness, addiction, and mental health. All of our clients’ lives have been impacted by alcohol and other drug dependencies.

Who We Are

Alpha House has a long history of innovating and evolving to meet the changing needs of our clients, the city, and the increasing complexities of homelessness and drug use.

How You Can Help

How We Help

Our services make up a continuum of care, which clients can enter at any point based on their needs. We operate shelter, detox, outreach, and housing programs.


Calgary Alpha House Society’s work positively impacts the Calgary community by providing help to vulnerable citizens. In doing so, we divert individuals away from unnecessary uses of health care, criminal justice, and emergency systems by building relationships and connecting clients to more appropriate community resources.
