The Faces of Homelessness

139

Homelessness has many faces. It could be the man in the suit sitting next to you on the C-Train on his way to work, the woman in the hardhat doing roadwork, the senior sipping a coffee at Tim Hortons or the parent waiting to pick their child up from daycare.

There are over 3,000 Calgarians experiencing homelessness and more than 14,000 households at extreme risk of homelessness. The RESOLVE Campaign is a collaboration of nine social service agencies, working together to create affordable rental housing with support services for up to 3,000 homeless and vulnerable Calgarians. RESOLVE is built on the proven Housing First approach—providing individuals with the stability of a home, first, coupled with the support they need to live healthy lives.

RESOLVE’s fundraising effort will conclude on March 31, 2018, but the need remains urgent.

To date, with the help of our generous donors and the Government of Alberta’s unprecedented investments, we have raised enough to provide 1,592 Calgarians with a key to an affordable rental home with the support they need to thrive.

We’ve made great strides, but there is still work to be done. Calgary, will you resolve to help end homelessness in our city?
