HomeBridge is a program of the Children's Cottage Society and is supported by the Calgary Homeless Foundation as part of its Homelessness Prevention and Diversion Initiative. Since 1986, the Children’s Cottage Society has been dedicated to preventing harm and neglect to children and building strong families through support services, respite programs and crisis nurseries. We are a recognized leader in providing effective programs and services to help ensure Safe Children in Healthy Families.
The grounding principle of the HomeBridge program is that preventing family homelessness is possible when help is available early on.
Here are the ways that HomeBridge helps families and people who want to assist them:
