It took a bit longer than we had planned, but worth the wait – our big beautiful Community Resource Centre in Forest Lawn is now OPEN!

Donors, Leaders, Elders, Staff and more joined us on Friday, January 26 for a ceremony to honour those who helped us make this vision happen and to bless all the work that will be happening here.   The following day we hosted an Open House for community members to learn more about what the space has to offer including the very popular modular skatepark.

We are so excited to be neighbours again with the amazing and diverse individuals of greater Forest Lawn; back working alongside you to strengthen our community!

A few highlights of what is offered here:

  • Community Pantry and Infant Essentials
  • Child & Parent Programming – BabySong, Come & Play, Homework Club
  • Adult education classes – Financial Literacy, ESL
  • Client Tax Return Program
  • Recreation Space including a modular Skatepark
  • Trained chaplains available to all for emotional and spiritual support

We pride ourselves on being welcoming . . . an open door to all in need.  What is news to many though, is that much of what happens at The Salvation Army Community Services (Calgary) is about opening doors out!  We open doors for our clients to the services and aids available to them – doors to solutions and opportunities – offering hope and respect as they transform their lives to step out into their community with their heads held high.
