Become a volunteer

The advantages of volunteering are many. Your time helps us move towards our goal of ending homelessness, but it also does wonders for everyone involved when a fresh face arrives to lend a hand. Plus, it shows those experiencing homelessness that they aren’t alone, raising their spirits and giving them hope.

** UPDATE: EVERYONE COUNTS – 2020 Coordinated Point-in-Time Count Postponed **

Amidst the global pandemic of COVID-19, the health and wellbeing of both our volunteers and Calgarians experiencing homelessness is top of mind. In line with advice from our provincial and national public health officials, we will be suspending Calgary’s 2020 Count until further notice. We will provide an update when a rescheduled date is confirmed for the Count. Please check back regularly for updates. 

We appreciate the help of enthusiastic and passionate volunteers for special projects that will help end homelessness in Calgary. Volunteers are invaluable to CHF as well as the many organizations and agencies we work with.
