What is Aspires?
The Aspires Housing Group of Calgary (Aspires) offers families peer support, an opportunity to learn about a variety of housing related topics and a place to explore potential housing solutions for adults with autism and other disabilities who require similar levels of support.
Aspires has grown to a network of about 200+ families, individuals, service providers, and developer/builders. While autism is the primary focus, Aspires is inclusive of other individuals with disabilities who may require similar supports.

The informal co-chairs of Aspires are Bonnie Kaplan and Richard Conte. Business meetings are typically held the first Thursday of each month at 7 pm at The Ability Hub (300, 3820 – 24 Avenue NW). Contact us anytime if you have any questions.

The Start
In 2014, a group of parents came together to create Aspires with the intention of developing local family-driven housing solutions with a range of supports for adults with autism.
