Housing Programs

Stable housing continues to be the major factor in overcoming poverty and is essential for good health, child development and personal well-being. A safe living environment helps build social connections and dramatically increases education and employment prospects. We not only help Calgary’s most vulnerable adults and children secure housing, we provide the support they need to maintain it.

Since 2008, CUPS has housed over 4,500 homeless adults and children.

Housing Programs and Supports results from April 1, 2015 to March 31, 2016:
– 703 adults and children were housed in CUPS programs
– 3,983 referrals for food, clothing, furniture and Alberta Works Emergency Funding were provided.
– 356 households were stabilized through the Crisis Intervention Fund
