EXIT Community Outreach is a downtown storefront, outreach and mobile van service that assists young people (typically ages 12-24) who have run away; or who are at risk of self-harm; or who are involved with sexual exploitation. The young people may also be in conflict with community, family, or the legal system. EXIT serves any young person who is in need of, or wants, support and assistance while on the street.
EXIT is committed to supporting self-sufficiency by coordinating resources to assist and support young people who live on Calgary’s streets. Through counselling and service referral, EXIT promotes the health of young people while they live on the streets and provides assistance when they choose to leave the streets.
EXIT Community Outreach started a new program called Reach on April 1, 2015. This program provides clinical and mental health supports to clients (15-24) through agencies funded by Calgary Housing. The program was created following a demand for clinical services for clients in the Housing First programs via the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
REACH consists of two clinicians who provide no-cost, walk-in counselling services at EXIT Community Outreach (117 7 Ave. S.W. Calgary) every Friday morning from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The clinicians also run a monthly group for the clients in our New Horizon program. This group covers a variety of topics including well-being, addictions, healthy relationships, positive choices and building self-confidence.
Referrals to REACH can be made through the Co-ordinated Access and Assessment.
