We are a big, diverse city and working with partners helps ensure that we can serve Calgarians in big and diverse ways! We have really enjoyed some recent opportunities to work with others – sharing what we are doing and learning about what they are doing.

A casual chat at a community agency gathering in Forest Lawn, led to a great group of volunteers from Momentum helping us deliver backpacks to school kids this past August. We know that Financial Literacy is a big barrier for many of the families we serve and we know that Momentum offers great programs to help. Our agencies have different things to offer, but the same drive to make things better for struggling families!

In September our neighbours, the Central Library, put together three days of inclusive and engaging activities for our residents and the public to enjoy during LobbyFest. This was a great opportunity to break down barriers and to work together to serve ALL who use our respective services and enjoy our collective “Front Porch” at the corner of 9th Ave and 3rd Street SE.

We have also recently launched our Community Council that brings together local professionals and agency representatives to work alongside our leadership team in an advisory role. We are blessed to have a great group of volunteer Council members with an array of expertise and experience to help us serve our city better!

We look forward to even more great collaborations in our future.


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.
