Dreamin Big! Galactic Gala


Blog by Heather Davis | May 16th, 2016


Join the Force on Saturday, September 24th at Telus Spark for Inn from the Cold’s Galactic Gala. Enter our galaxy for an out-of-this-world family-style gala event and enjoy an exciting evening full of food, entertainment, dancing, galactic games and treats to support homeless children and their families in Calgary.

All funds raised from this year’s gala will allow us to ensure that no family will have their essential needs unmet, and, more importantly, allow us to continue to evolve our family support, early childhood, and capacity building programming that is the true investment in helping families transition to independence. With your support, we can continue to offer shelter, sanctuary and healing to the many homeless children and their families in our city.

Families are the fastest growing demographic impacted by homelessness. Much like 2014, uncompromising growth in family homelessness in Calgary has continued to place strain on our 114-yrar-old building, putting us a capacity for 93% of 2015.  With an average of 111 individuals through our doors every night, this past year Inn from the Cold provided 43,230 shelter stays to 1047 children and their parents.  Sadly, children and their families are the fastest growing demographic impacted by homelessness.any homeless children and their families in our city.
