Coming soon… A New Community Teaching Home at Closer to Home

Closer to Home is growing!  We are pleased to announce that we will be opening a new Community Teaching Home in Calgary next month.  This home will house up to 5 at-risk youth until they are able to be reunited with their family.

To ensure the home is welcoming, safe and comfortable for the youth when they arrive, we are in need of some new items and gift cards. If you are able to help, please see the list below and contact Jessica at (403) 543-0550, ext. 250.  Thank you in advance for your support.

  1. Bed Bath and Beyond Gift Cards (to personalize bedrooms and bedding according to each youth’s preference)
  2. Ikea Gift Cards (to stock the kitchen with utensils, pots, pans and plates so kids will have nourishing homemade meals)
  3. Home Depot, Rona or Lowes Gift Cards (to spruce up the home and make it fresh, safe and inviting for the youth)
  4. Financial donations are always welcome and provide Closer to Home with the greatest flexibility, while providing the donor with a charitable tax receipt.  Use the donation form below to help open our new Teaching Home!
