About Acadia Place/Feed the Hungry/Mustard Seed

Calgary has a homeless population of approximately 3,000 according to the Calgary Homeless Foundation.


Many agencies work with Calgary’s homeless citizens to provide them with food and shelter, recovery from addictions, transitions to housing, employment and good health.


Three programs that serve our homeless will be walking in solidarity with them on Saturday, February 20 as we host and participate in Coldest Night of the Year (CNOY). Won’t you join us and experience a few hours of what it is like to be homeless on the streets of Calgary on a winter evening?


Acadia Place

Acadia Place is a project that supports housing first, a successful model that places people in a home with the supports they require to live a long and prosperous life. Located in southeast Calgary, Acadia Place, which is owned by Calgary Homeless Foundation and operated by CUPS, has 57 units housing a blend of single adults, couples and families, with the majority being families who were experiencing homelessness or were at extreme risk of becoming homeless. KAIROS Calgary, an ecumenical Social Justice initiative in Calgary, is currently fundraising to retire the mortgage on Acadia Place. Funds raised from CNOY will support this effort.


Feed the Hungry

Feed the Hungry (FTH) is a Sunday Night dinner program offering a sit down meal in St. Mary’s Hall in downtown Calgary. A ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Calgary, each week FTH offers 500 guests a three course dinner that is served by volunteers. FTH is intentional about creating an atmosphere of dignity and welcome. Proceeds will support the ongoing needs of the program.


The Mustard Seed

The Mustard Seed is non-denominational Christian charity that builds community, grows hope and supports change. It has been impacting and changing lives for more than 30 years. With support from donors and volunteers, the organization provides food, clothing and shelter to men and women who are experiencing poverty and homelessness in Calgary. It also helps them find homes and jobs and improve their overall health – physically, mentally and spiritually. Proceeds will be used to provide meals, employment coaching, and housing assistance.
