Poverty

Family at sunset sharing food at a picnic table
We are an emergency food distribution hub dedicated to providing families and individuals in temporary crisis with quality food as well as supporting other charitable organizations who work with low-income Calgarians.
Our vision is for Calgary to be a safe community, free of crime.
Our community-based organization is dedicated to reducing the incidence of crime and increasing community safety through preventative and restorative justice practices. A place for new beginnings, we work with individuals every day to help restore lives, prevent crime and strengthen communities...
Healing from trauma
We end the vicious cycle of addictions, mental health and homelessness by providing safe, affordable and permanent housing with intensive support for those leaving addictions treatment and would otherwise be discharged back to the streets of Calgary.
Promoting health and independence
When life gets complicated, nutrition is often one of the first things to go. Each day we knock on more than 700 doors, delivering nutritious and affordable meals to any Calgarian in need. Our volunteers deliver more than a meal...they bring a sense of community right to our clients' doorstep.
Calgary Pregnancy Care Centre
Facing an unplanned pregnancy can be confusing and overwhelming. It gets even harder when you feel alone. We are here to listen, provide practical support, and education to help build a stronger community.
Early intervention education program for children and parents
Through integrated health care, education and housing services, CUPS empowers individuals and families to overcome the challenges of poverty and reach their full potential. CUPS works with over 10,000 low-income Calgarians each year.
Helping others on the Recovery Journey
As part of Canada's most established national mental health organization, for 60 years we've facilitated access to the resources people require to maintain and improve mental health and community integration, build resilience and support recovery from mental illness and addiction.

We are tackling the global drinking water crisis in the only way that is truly sustainable: by building the knowledge and skills of local populations to meet their own needs. Through this model, we have helped 11.4 million people access better water or sanitation in 78 countries.
