Breaking ground on new affordable housing in Calgary
Post Date: Friday, June 12, 2015
On June 9, 2015, Mayor Naheed Nenshi joined with dignitaries, homebuilders, and the Calgary Homeless Foundation to celebrate the groundbreaking of two new affordable housing projects that will become home to 49 formerly homeless Calgarians.
The project is a result of the RESOLVE Campaign--a collaborative fundraising project to build more affordable housing in Calgary.
While the creation of these new homes is certainly worth celebrating, it is equally important to recognize how welcoming the communities of Hillhurst Sunnyside and Crescent Heights have been of these projects. Aurora on the Parkand Providence House are excellent additions to these amazing communities.
Here's the Calgary Homeless Foundation's perspective.
