When you need a safe place, we are here for you

To access the emergency shelter please call:

Call our helpline at (403) 529-1091 and a worker will talk to you about space availability and make plans for you (and your children) to come into the Shelter. We can also help arrange transportation to the Shelter if that is required.

Arriving at the Emergency Shelter

When you arrive, you will meet with staff and complete some very basic paperwork. After that, we will show you to your bedroom. Each bed has clean linens and basic hygiene packages. You will be given some time to settle in and get to know where things are. When you are ready, we will go over the Welcome package and tell you a bit more about what we do.
