How you
can help

The Alex is a hub for vulnerable Calgarians, with a reach to our highest-need areas.

Since 1973, The Alex has provided thoughtful, comprehensive care to vulnerable Calgarians. With clinical and social components included in almost all of our programs, The Alex tackles tough health and social issues head-on, and our preventative, cost-effective approach saves taxpayer dollars by moving people from poverty to stability and from crisis to wellness.

The Alex serves a community with complex health needs, often the result of issues such as poverty, trauma, homelessness, or addiction. At The Alex whole health is the goal – and you can’t be healthy if you are hungry, isolated, or experiencing mental health struggles.

We’ve asked local musicians to interpret some of their favourite songs written by women. With genres from soul to jazz, country to folk, the evening is sure to have something for everyone, and may leave you with a few new favourites to add to your playlist!

We are currently seeking options to continue this event remotely if necessary!
