Community Partnerships

Partners in Opportunity and Service

At Calgary Housing Company (CHC), we invest in community partnerships with organizations who are working alongside us to provide opportunities to residents and applicants to navigate challenges and reach their goals. We understand that achieving our mission of providing safe and affordable housing that enables positive social outcomes means acknowledging the interconnectedness of different areas of people’s lives.

Housing is one factor for the wellbeing of an individual or family, and it is inseparably connected to other areas such as employment, early childhood development, food security, and more. By working with other organizations with expertise and resources in other areas, CHC and its partners can leverage their own work and services to achieve more than could be achieved alone.

To guide our community partnership efforts, CHC has developed a Community Partnership Strategy that guides CHC’s decision making and capacity development in the area of community partnerships. A summary copy of the strategy can be viewed here.
