The power to end the affordable housing crisis in Calgary is in your hands. Resolve to get involved – and make a tangible difference to our city.
Our goal is to raise $120 million from the private sector to build the homes needed to help push Calgary’s Plan to End Homelessness over the finish line.
The Government has made unprecedented investments toward building affordable rental homes for Calgary’s homeless and vulnerable population. Now it’s our turn –it’s time for our community leaders and organizations to step forward with the same level of commitment and resolve.
We’re doing this because it makes good sense – both socially and economically.
The Housing First Model has been proven to be effective in addressing the root causes of homelessness while providing significant savings in other social costs. By reducing the use of healthcare, police, emergency services, the justice system and corrections, it costs the community $34,000 less per homeless person a year to provide housing with supports.
This level of collaboration is a first for Calgary – and a first for Canada.
RESOLVE’s sole purpose is to create the housing infrastructure that will provide stability and security. Our Partner agencies can then focus on providing support to help homeless and at-risk Calgarians work toward rebuilding their lives.
