By Jan. 29, 2018, Calgary was supposed to have effectively eliminated homelessness—that is, so that hard-luck individuals need shelters like the Drop-in for a few days before agencies find them affordable housing; emergency shelters were to be for brief emergencies. Drop-In managers are pleased to report they now accommodate 900 nightly, after several years filled to capacity at 1,100. But that falls well shy of the Ten-Year Plan to End Homelessness that galvanized Calgary in 2008, complete with a large digital clock that ticked down the days, hours, minutes and seconds to homelessness’s End Day.
