Calgary Homeless Foundation 2017 Report on Progress

Since 1998, the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) has been leading the charge to end homelessness in Calgary. As the system planner for Calgary’s Homeless-Serving System of Care, we see the big picture of homelessness in Calgary, and we work with community to remove the obstacles that prevent people from  nding their way back home. We promote collaboration between all orders of government, public sector service providers, foundations, homeless service providers - and all Calgarians - to provide easier and e ective access to services and supports to end homelessness in our city.

It’s working. Homelessness has slowed, thousands have been housed and the system has evolved into Canada’s best - a coordinated and collaborative network of agencies and people working together. Calgary has become a recognized leader in the development of successful programs designed to end homelessness.

The Calgary Homeless Foundation 2017 report on progress outlines the next steps and strategic directions for the upcoming year to help more people find their way home. CHF have housed over 8,400 individuals and added over 480 permanent supportive housing units to the sector – while maintaining a client/resident housing stability rate of 92%. Overall, Calgary is on track to house 10,000 individuals by the end of December 2018.
