THE WELLSPRING CALGARY EXPERIENCE     WHAT WE OFFER     CURRENT CALENDAR    PROGRAM BROCHURE

WHAT WE OFFER

Wellspring Calgary is a warm and welcoming community that provides a comprehensive range of support, resources and programs so anyone living with cancer and the people who care about them can improve the quality of their lives. Significant caregivers are welcome to attend programs since we recognize that cancer affects everyone, including family and friends.

Below is a sampling of more than 30 programs that are offered during a typical four-month period, with programs offered in Winter, Spring/Summer and Fall. Our program manager, Anna Carnell (annac@wellspringcalgary.ca) would be pleased to give you current updates. Our front desk is staffed by volunteers who would be happy to register you in person, by phone or online, offering tours and peer support during office hours. Most programs are offered at Carma House at 1404 Home Rd. NW, but we offer some programs in a South location.
