Finding affordable housing is a constant challenge for many people in Calgary and those who are living in shelters face even more obstacles when they're ready to transition into their own apartment.

Munir Bakri moved to Calgary from Hamilton late last year to be closer to family and when his living arrangements fell through he found himself on the steps of the Calgary Drop-in and Rehab Centre.

Larry lives in Sundial Apartments.

Looking at Larry now, you wouldn't assume he had lived a difficult life full of obstacles. But the reality is, the 66-year-old has experienced an existence with enough tragedy to fill up three lifetimes. The Calgary Drop-In & Rehab Centre Society helped him get back on his feet, and into supportive housing. If approved, Centre 4800 would help more people like Larry.
