Find a Shelter

Homeless persons and families can access emergency shelters across Alberta. There are three types of shelter accommodation:

  • Emergency Shelters: means overnight accommodation to individuals who have no permanent address.
  • Short-Term Supportive Housing: means temporary housing with support to assist client movement into permanent housing.
  • Long-Term Supportive Housing: means unlimited stay at a facility that provides 24/7 support to its residents.

In the 2018-19 fiscal year, the province committed $46.8 million to support agencies providing emergency shelter spaces. Funding was allocated to 28 emergency shelters to provide nearly 3,400 spaces across the province.
