Building strong and healthy communities

Did you know…

… Mental health fluctuates throughout life. There are countless stressful life experiences that may lead an individual or family to seek support, such as being a victim of violence.

… 12.5% or 27,360 of the people in Central Alberta has some form of disability and need help to live independently

Any one of us is impacted by an unexpected crisis each and every day.  To enable people to feel content, connected and by helping to build a strong community, we supported 9,360 people facing a crisis or long-term challenge last year.

How we are making a difference

We have made three-year grants available to enable more stability for programs.

We have partnered with 18 programs

We are a member of the provincial 211 steering committee


We have promoted the importance of well being in our newsletter and through our social media.

A life is changed

My dad was depressed and not eating or even talking with many until he started receiving meals. Since he is eating healthy and consistently he is feeling better, he is getting out to The Seniors Downtown House and even calling to let us know what he is eating. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
