Homes for Heroes Community Coming to Calgary

VETERANS HOUSING PROJECT

The Canadian Legacy Project is currently working with the Homes For Heroes Foundation (www.h4hf.ca) in building unique and exciting housing developments for homeless veterans across Canada. The issue of homelessness among Canadian Armed Forces veterans is an area of increasing concern. Unfortunately, over 2,500 Canadian veterans are homeless and have not been successful in transitioning from their military career to healthy and productive civilian lives. The Homes For Heroes Foundation is an initiative that will assist with re-integration of military veterans into civilian life within Canada through the provision of affordable housing and a robust support system. Our first community is slated for development in Calgary in 2018, with the goal to have a community in every major Canadian city by 2020.
