#PayitForwardYYC

Nearly 1 in 5 Calgarian households are struggling with housing costs.

Join us in our third annual #PayitForwardYYC campaign to help provide affordable housing for the vulnerable Calgarians that need it most. 

 Nobody should have to choose between having a roof over their heads and putting food on the table. #PayitForwardYYC helps low-income Calgarians bridge the gap.

Your
impact

  • $250 provides a family affordable rent for one month
  • $1,500 ensures a family has a safe place to call home for six months
  • $3,000 gives a family the gift of stability for an entire year
  • $35,000 funds a building for the entire year!

For some of our residents rent still takes up most of their income.

Through the GAP (Generating Affordable Possibilities) program, you can subsidize rent to residents, so rent is no more than 30% of their income. Rent subsidies allows residents to afford basic necessities, such as food, medicine and education.
