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 moves 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.
