Housing Secure Initiative

Housing Secure Initiative

RockPointe’s Housing Secure Initiative program provides rent support, life coaching, friendship and community to families who are dealing with financial instability. For almost 2 years now, RockPointe has been running a pilot program to confront the problem of housing insecurity in Calgary.

We are thrilled to have 4 clients placed in the program, and are currently in the process of onboarding a 5th. Each family is housed in a safe and secure rental unit, matched with an advocate to support them throughout the program and provided with a life coach to help them set and meet their goals. Each client has also benefitted from the community support offered by various people at RockPointe, from moving, budgeting, and career help, to spiritual care and friendship. We are seeing solid connections, empowered clients and great progress and we are beyond grateful for what God is doing!

2 Ways That You Can Help:

1) Financially - we need financial support to provide the rent subsidies that are the basis for what we do. Please use an offering envelope (or make an online donation to the Multi-Fund) and and designate your gift towards “Housing”.

2) Practically - consider getting involved in the program, as there may be a need for your particular skills and gifts. We are especially interested in people with professional coaching certifications and financial counselling backgrounds.

Please contact the office for more information on how to get involved.
