Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre
The main focus of the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre is to create a friendly non-invasive safe and supportive environment as an alternative to the streets and bars, and to provide an atmosphere where personal growth can take place.
Everyone is welcome and accepted, the individuality of each person is respected and help is given when requested. The Centre's programs include shelter, meals, job placement and other support services.
Funding is provided by provincial and municipal governments, the United Way, churches and private donations.
Donations to the Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre are income tax deductible.
This Centre has a history of over 40 years. In 1961, the Centre began operations under the auspices of the Calgary Roman Catholic Diocese and the Calgary Interfaith Community Action Committee. It provided services from different locations in the east end of the city.
In 1977 the two groups amalgamated, and the present Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre was founded. The Centre is governed by the Board of Directors of the Calgary Drop-In Centre Society, an incorporated, non-denominational, non-profit, charitable organization. It is administered by a full time staff and volunteers.
