In October 2020, we opened The James House in Hillhurst, built in partnership with Logel Homes/Cardel Lifestyles, offering 27 transitional units for people experiencing homelessness. Social supports for the residents are provided by McMan Calgary & Area.

The Triveri House built by Calbridge Homes opened in November 2020 in Forest Lawn, bringing 38 new homes for vulnerable youth experiencing or at-risk of homelessness. Our agency partners Enviros provide onsite staff to meet our residents where they are at and support them in their journey.

In February 2021, we launched Legacy on 5th in Downtown West, bringing 74 new affordable homes. HomeSpace partnered with Calgary Seniors, Autism Calgary, New Age Services and more to provide supports for the vulnerable seniors and people living with autism and other cognitive challenges who now reside at Legacy.

All three sites, totalling 139 new homes, were made possible through a collaborative fundraising campaign with Calgary Homeless Foundation and commitments from the Government of Canada through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) and land donations and financial support from the City of Calgary. The Government of Alberta contributed generous funding to The James House and Triveri House.

“The RESOLVE Campaign represented a community wide response to a serious community deficit. Great thanks to everyone involved; we had a great team effort on this building. Legacy on 5th is a very impressive building and we’re looking forward to seeing people move in and fulfilling a need in the community.”
