Project Summary:

In the spirit of community and collaboration, IFTC presents  'I am Inn', our theme for '10 - 11. Any contribution makes a difference; even a gift of pocket change matters!

The campaign crescendos with a celebration at SouthCentre Mall on Sep. 25, along with our presentation of a Playing for Change concert at MacEwan Hall, on Oct. 13.  Proceeds will be used to support & introduce programs that help families build the skills required to transition to & sustain housing.


  • music concert, with 1800 attendees
  • Unplugged concert at the Inn
  • celebration centre court SouthCentre Mall, with hundreds of attendees

We provide space at the Inn to facilitate the delivery of 29 programs free of charge to the community & free of charge to service providers.These programs allow IFTC to support a hub of service for those in need.
