About Bankview Apartments

KAIROS Calgary, The Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) and CUPS Calgary have partnered to help families at risk of or experiencing homelessness as they are re-housed with supports at Bankview Apartments through the A Place to Call Home campaign. Bankview is a 26 unit building that provides permanent supported housing for families and individuals.

KAIROS and the other partners are fundraising through Coldest Night to pay off the mortgage. This ensures that tenant rents will remain low and affordable in perpetuity, giving the residents a chance to settle into their home and start working on any challenges they may have.

KAIROS Calgary brings together 10 Christian denominations and about 130 congregations in the largest ecumenical effort that we know of in Canada to help families at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

The Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) is implementing Calgary's Plan to End Homelessness in collaboration with non-profit agencies, businesses, governments, the faith community, and all Calgarians. The goal is to develop a more effective homeless-serving system that will end homelessness.

CUPS Calgary is a non-profit organization using integrated health care, education and housing services to empower people to overcome the challenges of poverty and reach their full potential.

About Feed the Hungry

If Sunday dinner is a tradition in your home, or if you have fond memories of special Sunday dinners around the table with family, imagine if all of that was stripped away and Sunday was just another day of searching for food and shelter.

At Feed the Hungry, we offer a family-style, sit down dinner each Sunday in an atmosphere of community, warmth, dignity, safety and respect. We intentionally strive to re-create that environment many of us remember so fondly.

Many of our guests come to us after walking through harsh weather conditions. By participating in Coldest Night of the Year, we invite you to not only help us raise funds to operate our program, but also to experience a small taste of what it means to experience homelessness during Calgary's often brutally cold winter nights.

Walk with us on February 25, 2017. And remember, it's cold out there.

About The Mustard Seed Calgary


Adults experiencing poverty and homelessness have their basic needs met, are growing hope and are supported toward sustainable life change and integration into the broader community.


To build hope and wellbeing for our most vulnerable citizens through Jesus’ love.
