Help us build a resilient city for all

In 1989, Charitify opened its doors. It was a place where low-income and homeless Calgarians could get basic medical care and referral services. Since then, we’ve helped thousands of people, but 30 years later, the city has changed – and Charitify has changed too. We’ve moved beyond basic services to an evidence-based, integrated care approach. By applying the science of brain development, that addresses the root causes of poverty and poor health, we create lasting, positive change for our clients, their children and our city.

Options for your donations:

WHERE MOST NEEDED – The needs of our clients are ever-changing and as such, we will apply your donation where it is needed the most.

ECONOMIC – Help us reduce economic barriers so individuals and families have stable homes, access to food and nutrition, improve their skills and job prospects and ultimately increase their quality of life.

SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL – When people feel connected to their community, have good relationships with each other and learn to navigate through their challenges, their lives get better. With your support, together we will build a stronger, healthier city for all.

Charity is the act of your power

In order to stay independent and do the important work we do, Charitify never takes any money from corporations or government. We rely entirely on support from members like you!

Maximising Learning for Adults with Specific Learning Differences
Stuart Pollard & Alan Andrew
This session will consider the implications of inclusion and diversity in the classroom: What do specific learning differences look like in the classroom? Which strategies will support people with learning differences, and how can they support learning for all? What are the benefits and rewards of an inclusive classroom? We will discuss areas including the social model of disability, barriers to learning, differentiation and universal design through the lens of adult learning.
