Aspen partners in community with children, youth and families to inspire hope and develop sustainable futures.
"Helping people create better lives."
Aspen is an innovative, community-driven social service agency helping Calgarians since 1984.
We do things differently, by helping people overcome their challenges for good so they and their families can live meaningful, engaged and independent lives.
Our unique approach helps over 6,000 Calgarians a year use their own strengths to make lasting, positive changes and build better lives. This helps our whole community. Aspen is helping break the cycle of poverty for life.
About 90% of the people Aspen helps live in poverty. They are single moms, kids, teens and families from 167 communities across Calgary.
Each is facing unique challenges. All have the capacity to learn and develop. All have the right to a safe, meaningful and independent life.
History has shown that only dealing with basic needs such as food and shelter doesn't provide lasting results. Aspen's staff help clients find their dreams, set their own goals and develop life-long solutions that work for them.
