An exciting new collaboration between Autism Society of Alberta, Autism Edmonton, and The Sinneave Family Foundation will leverage the energy, expertise, and success of the Aspires Housing Group of Calgary to grow support for families and access to housing opportunities across Alberta.
The vision for the collaboration is to work together to better understand housing needs across the province, extend the reach of support to families, learn from each other to proactively facilitate new housing solutions, and establish a provincial approach to recruitment in order to capitalize on housing units as they become available.
Individuals and families from across the province are invited to join the Provincial Housing Support Network. By joining the network mailing list you will receive information about activities and resources in areas of Alberta that may be of interest to you.
To indicate your interest in joining the Provincial Housing Support Network mailing list, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line type “Provincial Housing Support Network mailing list” and in the body of the email include your first and last name, email address, and the city or region of Alberta that you currently live and/or are interested in hearing about housing opportunities in.
