Our Impact

what we do & how we help

We provide places to call home for a diverse group of residents from all walks of life. By providing people with affordable, appropriate, and safe housing free of judgement, pity or prejudice we set the foundation for building individual resilience and strength to live a fulfilling life.

We believe that thriving communities are defined by diversity, compassion, respect, dignity, and inclusion. Our commitment to inclusive communities and the mixed model approach, whereby 50% of residents pay market rent and 50% paying rent-geared-to-income, has many benefits such as:

  • An enlivened community, built on emotional, physical, mental and spiritual respect
  • Providing well-maintained properties that complement and enhance the value of neighbouring properties, thereby increasing acceptance of affordable housing within communities
  • Increased efficiencies based on partnerships
  • Fostering community development as all community members, regardless of ability or income, contribute to the overall well-being of the community
  • Helping residents avoid stigma that may be attached to social housing

Our housing portfolio consists of five properties in one of Calgary’s most vibrant communities of Hillhurst and Sunnyside. We offer bachelor, 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units.

We also operate commercial spaces at full market price which help to support financial sustainability.
