Calgary Transit and the Alpha House are continuing a partnership aimed at connecting vulnerable Calgarians with medical aid, housing support and addiction services.
Started in September 2018, the initiative sees members of the Downtown Outreach Addictions Partnership (DOAP) team partnered with peace officers at transit stops between the Sunalta and Victoria Park/Stampede stations.
There they engage with Calgarians facing homelessness or addition, troubled youth and people with developmental disabilities to build relationships and try to find positive, long-term solutions for them.
