Goal 11: Sustainable Cities & Communities

Emma Rosenberg


... encourage homeless individuals living in Calgary to move towards a more stable life through community initiatives and involvement?



Homelessness is a state of living, not a category of people. No matter their race, gender, ethnicity, opinions or choices, all people deserve respect, dignity and support within their community. Calgary is working towards the eradication of homelessness, but the road to doing so is long and complicated.

Calgary has multiple initiatives and efforts in place to assist individuals in getting out of the homeless cycle. Even with the help of the city, independent organizations, government and volunteers, there is still a gap in the system’s structure. This gap offers the opportunity for our city and communities to discover solutions to help improve the lives of homeless individuals and keep them out of the homeless cycle.
