Join us for our annual Youth Health Centre Gala!
Friday October 27
Hellenic Community Hall
This special event raises important funds to support youth programs at The Alex. Last year over 4400 youth between the ages of 12-24 visited our YHC for health and social supports, and 56% of them do not have a permanent place to call home.
Please join us for a night of inspiring stories, delicious food and drinks, a silent auction and a great live band.
Dress: Come as your favourite literary character, or dress in cocktail classics.
Sponsorships are available! Interested? Contact Johanna Schwartz firstname.lastname@example.org
Changing Health. Changing Lives.
The Alex is changing how we look at health care in Calgary.
We know that good health is the complete state of physical, mental, emotional and economic well-being. We cannot enjoy whole health when we are hungry, when we are in chronic pain, when we don’t have a roof over our head, when we feel disconnected from our community, when we are living in poverty. And fixing one of these issues while ignoring the rest is just a band-aid solution.
Our health, housing and food programs support our most vulnerable neighbours, tackling tough health and social issues head-on, and our preventative, cost-effective programs save millions in taxpayer dollars by moving people from poverty to stability and from crisis to wellness.
The Alex has moved!
We are excited to announce we have moved several of our services to a new location just steps from the Franklin LRT station.
The Alex Community Health Centre (2840 2 Ave SE) is the new home of our Family and Youth Health Centres, our Breastfeeding Clinic and our Housing First programs, plus our administrative team.
