RESOLVE

HOUSING - RESOLVE is a campaign to raise $120 million to build affordable and supported housing for 3,000 homeless in Calgary. RESOLVE is a collaboration of government, business and communities leaders, and the following nine partner agencies: Accessible Housing, Bishop O’Byrne Housing, Calgary Alpha House Society, Calgary Homeless Foundation, Calgary John Howard Society, Horizon Housing Society, Silvera for Seniors, The Mustard Seed, and Trinity Place Foundation of Alberta. RESOLVE is based on the Housing First Model which has proven to be "effective in addressing the root causes of homelessness" while substantially reducing that population's use of healthcare, police, emergency services, and the corrections and justice system.
