With the goal of helping youth experiencing homelessness gain the skills to return to their families or to live independently in the community, our programs offer a comprehensive support system to help youth permanently end their experience of homelessness.
We work to prevent youth homelessness through specific initiatives in support of vulnerable young people and their families.
For youth that require long-term support, Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary’s Youth Housing program provides customized support to assist each youth based on their individual needs.
Through the shelter services, Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary provides temporary or urgent support for youth experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
If you are a youth (ages 12-17) in need of a safe place to stay, please come to Avenue 15, located at 938 – 15 Avenue SW. Avenue 15 is open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
Outreach & Prevention
The Prevention and Outreach stream at Boys & Girls Clubs of Calgary offers support and advocacy to vulnerable youth and their families. Operating through a natural support lens we serve youth between the ages of 14-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in connecting to the supports they need to successfully transition to adulthood.
