Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre Society

We will be launching our Calgary Christmas WishList in part with #GivingTuesday. Here is some info on the program. The WishList started with a organization called the Homeless Partners out of Vancouver. The DI began operating the program in-house in Dec 2010. The program is designed around volunteers, donors and our clients. Volunteers interview our clients asking about their past, some stories they would like to share, and their Christmas WISH . Our volunteers assist with posing the stories and wishes online. Donors are encouraged to visit our website, sponsor an individual, wrap the gift and finally, drop it off for our client at The DI. On Christmas morning, volunteers hand out the presents to our clients, making Christmas morning exciting, meaningful, and has them knowing that someone out there cares about them and wants them to have a Merry Christmas! The Calgary Drop-In Centre is ‘the voice’ for the marginalized, disenfranchised and homeless population of our city. Regardless of the circumstances leading to their current situation, to be of service, without judgment, and to fairly and appropriately provide programs and support that assists each individual in their efforts to move forward with their lives. Our mission is To prevent homelessness where possible, offer care and shelter when needed, and provide opportunities for people to rehabilitate and rebuild their lives.
