Why do we need this building?
Only a small percentage of Calgary’s housing is both accessible and affordable. Many Calgarians with limited physical mobility are stuck in hospital or living in unsafe and inaccessible homes. Accessible Housing needs this infrastructure to provide them with safe and secure housing.
- Build a new apartment building for 45 people who have limited mobility due to spinal cord injuries or progressive illnesses and can’t return to their homes
- Tenants pay rent based on their income so that it’s affordable.
- A fully accessible design removes barriers that people with mobility challenges face – this could include ramps, adjustable countertops, wider hallways, etc. This means tenants can live independently and with dignity.
- Multipurpose rooms can be used for counselling, support, programs, socializing and other activities.
- Commercial kitchen offers nutritious meals, an important element of healthy living.
- Office space provides a place for on-site support staff.
- 24/7 health care support
- Meal service
