Every person that walks through our doors is a unique individual with a powerful story to tell.

The reasons they come to us are all different. Many have never had a chance in life – bringing with them a history of neglect, abuse and isolation. Some have watched as their world crumbled to pieces before their eyes. Others are battling through the grips of addiction and/or the affliction of a mental health condition.

Sometimes all a person needs is a hot meal to get them through the day. Others might need a bed while they find a more permanent place to live. Many require more extensive services – counseling, medical care, help with accessing government services and finding income supports, or access to affordable housing.

Whatever our clients need, we are here to help them navigate the often complex path they’re on, with care and direction tailored to their needs.  

People aren’t born on the street. Nor do lives have to end there. With help, the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre is where some lives begin.

The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre Society is a community of kindness, focused on providing more than 50 programs and services to Calgarians experiencing homelessness, marginalization and extreme poverty.

Serving Calgary for more than 50 years, we are the largest organization of its kind in North America. The Calgary Drop-In offers a complete range of wrap-around community supports – from meals and shelter, to clothing, medical services, counseling, volunteer opportunities, education, permanent supportive housing, and more – to over 10,000 people each year.

We are proud to be a community partner and trusted resource for Calgarians in their greatest time of need. Thanks to the generous support and collaboration of our incredible volunteers, donors, and members from all levels of government, the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre Society is where many lives begin.
