Project Thrive Donation
In its 75th year, AREA was proud to contribute $150,000 to Project Thrive - a joint Inn from the Cold and HomeSpace project that retrofitted a downtown officer tower into an inviting building that houses a family emergency shelter, transitional housing, 82 affordable housing units, and community supports, such as a childcare centre.
AREA Ukrainian Support Initiative
As Alberta is home to one of the world's largest Ukrainian populations, AREA's Board of Directors felt strongly that there was a direct role Alberta REALTORS® could play in supporting refugees of the Russian invasion. AREA allocated $150,000 in funding to support housing, transportation, language training and basic aids to daily living for refugees and their host families.
