Over the past 90 years, the organization has seen many changes, expanding its scope of services to over 20 communities in central Alberta. From continuing care, supportive living, and independent living for seniors to a variety of housing programs including affordable family housing, the organization remains committed to giving its residents and clients an enhanced quality of life while maintaining its faith-based roots.
