Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Calgary Drop-In Centre? 

The Calgary Drop-In Centre (the DI) is more than an emergency shelter. The DI provides essential care as well as health services, employment training, and housing supports to people who need help. Its programs and services connect people to permanent housing that meets their individual needs. Learn about our most recent outcomes in the 2019-20 Report to Community here.

I’m looking for an interview. What’s the best channel to go through? 

There are two options – you can call the DI’s media line at 403-852-0470 or send an email to communications@thedi.ca. Please indicate your name, media outlet, a general description of what you are after, and the timeline that you are working on.

Can I film an interview at the main shelter?

The DI has updated their media practices over the past few years and no longer allows photography or videography on the premises, except in extremely special circumstances. It’s our responsibility to provide our clients with the privacy they deserve. We encourage interested parties looking for visuals from the DI to reach out and work with our communications team.

Why are there no pictures of people experiencing homelessness on your website?

While we know that accounts and photos of people experiencing homelessness are very impactful empathy tools, our priority is to care for the folks staying with us and help maintain confidentiality. Because we work with people who are in their most vulnerable state, we cannot be sure we’re achieving informed consent.

Sometimes, we are inspired by several stories we learn and create impact stories like this one, Chuck’s Story.
