Home Fire 

As with all of Boys and Girls Clubs of Calgary’s Youth Housing and Shelter services, our ultimate goal is to have this experience be the youth’s last experience with homelessness. 

Home Fire provides Aboriginal youth, ages 16 to 24 who are experiencing homelessness, with a home where they can begin to heal, build community and reconnect with culture and family. Through this initiative, we endeavor to help Aboriginal youth reconnect with or create their “home fire” by building community and family using a Housing First approach.

“It doesn’t matter where you are on this earth. When you connect with another Aboriginal person, it’s like you’ve found family.”
- Mike Lickers

Who can access Home Fire? 

Aboriginal youth, ages 16 to 24, who are experiencing homelessness, and who want to be connected with a home where they can begin to heal, build community and reconnect with culture and family.

How can you access the program?
