Aspen Winter Breather2

Aspen's Winter Breather Program

Aspen couldn’t provide the much-needed Winter Breather program without donor support. Because of the generosity of donors and our community partner, ENMAX, we are able to continue our work to help Calgarians leave homelessness, connect with their communities and lead successful, sustainable lives. 

Thank you for your continued partnership and support!

Donate NOW to help families living in poverty this holiday season!

The holidays can be a difficult time of year for families living in poverty.

For a struggling family, the added pressure of knowing there isn't enough money to pay the bills and buy gifts for the kids can take an emotional toll on an already vulnerable family.

That's what makes Aspen Family's Winter Breather program so effective and why your gift today will make such a difference.

Stacey doesn’t know how she would have survived last winter without Winter Breather. She had just fled an abusive situation and had to start all over again with her infant son. Winter Breather is helping her make a new life and build important holiday traditions. View her story here.

Donations to the Winter Breather program help Aspen provide at-risk families who are currently connected to an Aspen program  with basic need support such as heat, electricity, groceries, telephone and transportation assistance so that the stress of coping over the holidays is a little less.

Without the additional worry of juggling between paying the utility bill or buying gifts for the kids, with your help, parents can do both! A temporary reprieve while they catch their breath and experience some peace of mind with their family.

Please give generously.  DONATE NOW
