Community-Driven Support

Community fundraising plays a pivotal role in supporting local causes and empowering communities to make a difference. At Distress Centre Calgary, we recognize the immense value that comes from this collective effort.

Community fundraising supports local causes, fosters unity, creates positive change, encourages generosity, and empowers communities to make a difference.

Opportunities to Help

Our volunteer opportunities allow you to provide support in various ways, including over the phone and via chat, text, or email. We also provide extensive practical and ongoing training.

As Calgary’s only 24-hour crisis agency, we are often the first point of contact for those seeking help. Make a career out of making a difference!

Distress Centre is committed to furthering the field of social work, and we view practicum students as a great asset to our team.  Practicum opportunities exist year-round within the Crisis Line Program and Counselling Program, along with other opportunities.
