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 is an affordable housing complex owned by the Calgary Homeless Foundation. It provides housing and supports for 58 formerly homeless families and families at risk of homelessness. KAIROS Calgary, an ecumenical Social Justice initiative in Calgary, is currently fundraising to pay down the mortgage on Acadia Place, a property owned by the Calgary Homeless Foundaion. Funds raised from CNOY will support this effort

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 is a Christian not-for-profit organization that builds community, grows hope and supports change by delivering basic services, health and wellness, housing and employment programs to those in need and partners with the community to address the root causes of poverty. Proceeds will support the greatest needs of the organization.
