Serving Women – West Campus

For over 100 years The Salvation Army has served Calgarians from its West Campus location in the SW community of Shaganappi, evolving and adapting to answer the changing needs of the community.  Presently, the programs offered at this location focus on serving women.  We operate a 24/7 Women’s Emergency Shelter with a plan to grow our housing program in the coming years to include transitional housing as well.  Our goal is to create a space for women where basic needs can be met, education opportunities given and with support and connection we can help women of all ages be strong, independent community members.

Programs Offered 

Women’s Emergency Shelter:

We offer emergency shelter housing for any woman aged 18 and
over who is experiencing homelessness. 

Our goal is to provide consistent access to basic needs in a safe and supportive
environment so that women can work on beginning their recovery from trauma,
abuse, addiction, grief, loss, and physical and mental illness.

All Women who access the shelter have access to: 

  • 3 meals per day
  • Help with essentials like clothing and hygiene items 
  • Access to laundry facilities
  • Resource Specialists for guidance and referrals
  • Access to Wi-Fi and Common Areas for health and learning activities
  • Education Opportunities
  • Chaplaincy Support

Doing More

We need more housing options for women. We need housing that is safe, housing that promotes confidence and further success, housing that offers continued access to a stabilizing community with on-site supports – we need transitional housing for women.

At our beautiful West Campus location we have two additional houses that are now being renovated to create 22 Transitional Housing Units for women! These units will be rented to women at a subsidized rate, allowing them to increase their independence and responsibility gradually while remaining in a supportive community, helping them to transition back into living in the community.
