Keeping up with CHF 

Spring 2016
Stepping Stone Manor

Stepping Stone Manor is the first ‘purpose-built’ apartment building to be completed as part of CHF’s goal to build 8 – 10 permanent supportive housing apartment buildings through the RESOLVE Campaign. A first of its kind in Canada, RESOLVE is comprised of nine not-for-profit agencies who have joined forces to raise $120 million to create homes for 3,000 vulnerable Calgarians. You can read more about Stepping Stone Manor - an amazing example of courageous collaboration on our blog.
