Community Spirit Grant

Donations double thanks to Community Spirit

Thanks to the generous support of many individuals like you, and of the Community Spirit Program, Closer to Home Community Services was able to purchase a van for its programs and was also able to put support towards its Homework Club program.

As an individual donor over the past few years, your impact was doubled, thanks to the Community Spirit Program, through the government of Alberta’s Culture and Community Services department.  This program provides an opportunity for eligible organizations to apply for matching grants based on the total amount of cash donations from individual Albertans that have been received over a 12-month fiscal period.

Without the support of our individual donors it would be very difficult for the children and families we serve to access vital community programs and parenting classes. We would like to take the time to thank our individual donors and the Community Spirit Program; your support is instrumental to our success.

Closer to Home Community Services has a solid 15-year history of providing cost-effective family-centered services in Calgary and surrounding areas. Public funding dollars are stretched to the limit. Children and families need more resources. We want to better meet the diverse and complex needs of today’s families in our communities; we want to keep families together. Each day we make a difference in the lives of children and their families. When children can stay with their parents, they have the chance to grow up healthy and happy.
