Legacy Place Society is dedicated to providing temporary home-away-from-home support for Peace Officers, Fire Fighters, Emergency Medical Services, 911 Dispatch, Veterans, and Canadian Military Personnel (serving or retired), along with their families during times of medical, marital, or accommodation crisis.
We provide confidential and safe transitional housing (individually or as a family) for well-being, security and access to professional support, allowing quicker recovery from a broad range of serious difficulties.
Our discreetly located residential settings in Calgary, Edmonton, and Red Deer offer a secure haven. In cases where accommodations are full or for other reasons, we have the flexibility to utilize nearby hotels as a resource. It’s crucial to note that Legacy Place Houses are not treatment centers, but rather a supportive environment during challenging times.
