Legacy Place Society provides temporary home away from home support for active and veteran Law Enforcement, Emergency Medical/Fire/911 Dispatch and Canadian Armed Forces personnel and their families.  This CONFIDENTIAL and SAFE transitional housing is for the well-being, safety, security and access to professional support for recovery from a broad range of serious health related, relationship or personal difficulties.  Legacy Place Society Houses are located in North Calgary, South Edmonton and Red Deer.  

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? The addresses are confidential but are located close to major hospitals, shopping malls and transportation arteries.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO STAY AT LEGACY PLACE? We ask for a nominal fee to assist operating costs associated to running the locations.  Each night/room is $15/night/room.  An E-transfer for payment is accepted (use email of and choose “what color is the sky at night”… answer is black).

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING IF I STAY AT LEGACY PLACE? Cell phone and or personal device to access internet, clothing, medications, and personal grooming supplies.

DO WE NEED TO BRING FOOD? At Legacy Place, basics such as milk, coffee, cream, sugar, bread, butter, peanut butter and condiments are available.   There are also canned and dry goods such as cereal, soups, KD, etc… on hand.  Grocery stores are nearby to buy food and other personal necessities.  The main kitchen and eating area is for all to enjoy, we just ask that you DO NOT EAT in your rooms, ensure you clean as you go and don’t consume other foods items marked for others.

WHAT IF I NEED TO BRING MY CHILDREN? Each situation is unique as there are times of a quick in town medical appointment or a shared custody situation where one of the parents has a weekend visit with their kids.  Same rules of safety and code of conduct are expected when kids are with you.  We will not babysit, or provide child care while you are at appointments.  As part of the Intake process, we can further discuss the situation.

DO YOU HAVE A PLAY AREA? Not specifically to each location, however we have a selection of board games, puzzles and elementary type toys.  Play grounds are close by.

DO YOU HAVE WI-FI? Most individuals have their own personal devises that they bring with them.  Should there be a situation where this is not the case, please feel free to notify us in advance.  Free Wi-Fi is available via password at check in time.

DO YOU PROVIDE TRANSPORTATION TO OUR APPOINTMENTS? While it is not our mandate to provide transportation, we will try to help out as much as we can.  There are close by bus routes.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS OF OPERATION?  Contact Legacy Place Society directly at 403-201-9945 if dealing with a medical accommodation need.  Otherwise, check our list of Intake Workers and they’ll be able to assist you for other reasons of needing accommodations.  Upon confirmation of acceptance to the accommodation needs, the House Attendant will work with the scheduling arrangements to bring you in.  We typically will not accept new clients after 8pm.

COULD WE BRING OUR PET? Due to allergies and liabilities, NO, however, if you have a ‘service dog’, we will take this into consideration.  We will NOT be able to leave the service dog alone in our care thus it will be entirely your responsibility for looking after them. We must be notified prior so proper arrangements can be made.
