About KAIROS Calgary
KAIROS Calgary is an ecumenical initiative bringing together 130 churches from 10 denominations to help homeless families in Calgary. KAIROS Calgary has formed a partnership with the Calgary Homeless Foundation, HomeSpace and CUPS to provide volunteers to support homeless families and individuals and fundraise to pay down the mortgages on Acadia Place, Bankview, Claire and Longbow. These are four affordable housing complexes that provide permanent, supportive housing for Calgary’s most vulnerable.
In March 2011, KAIROS Calgary launched A Place to Call Home, an innovative project to help develop affordable housing for individuals and families by fundraising to pay down the mortgage on affordable housing units. The first goal was to pay off the mortgage for Acadia Place, a 58-unit family housing complex in SW Calgary, which occurred in May 2016. The current goal is to raise $1 million to pay down the mortgage at Bankview, a 27-unit, inner-city apartment building . Support is also given to homeless families and individuals by providing volunteers for building maintenance and improvement, housing needs, and programming.
