RESOLVE

Making Calgary a better home for everyone.

Horizon Housing Society is one of nine proud partners in the RESOLVE Campaign, a first-of-its-kind, community-driven fundraising Campaign aimed at creating a diverse mix of affordable rent-based housing units in Calgary.

RESOLVE is about providing affordable and supported housing for 3,000 vulnerable and homeless Calgarians.

We believe every Calgarian deserves a place to call home. And we believe that the people in our city have the will, means and power to put real roofs over the heads of those who need them most. RESOLVE is a partnership of nine Calgary social service agencies that have come together along with government with a single one-time goal: Build affordable rental housing for 3,000 vulnerable and homeless Calgarians.

The goal of RESOLVE is to raise $120 million from the private sector to build the homes needed to help push Calgary’s 10 Year Plan to End Homelessness over the finish line.

Government has made unprecedented investments toward building affordable rental homes for Calgary’s homeless and vulnerable population. Now it’s our turn – it’s time for our community leaders and organizations to step forward with the same level of commitment and resolve.

This level of collaboration is a first for Calgary – and a first for Canada.

RESOLVE’s sole purpose is to create the housing infrastructure that will provide stability and security. We can then focus on ensuring support is provided to help homeless and at-risk Calgarians work toward rebuilding their lives.

We’re doing this because it makes good sense – both socially and economically.

The Housing First Model has been proven to be effective in addressing the root causes of homelessness while providing significant savings in other social costs. By reducing the use of healthcare, police, emergency services, the justice system and corrections, it costs the community $34,000 less per homeless person a year to provide housing with supports.
