“The addition of 24 studio suites at Diamond Spring Lodge allows Homeland Housing flexibility to provide supportive housing services and programs to meet the changing needs of seniors living in Redwater and the surrounding area for many years to come. We are grateful for the support from the federal and provincial governments.”
With a mix of one- and two-bedroom units, the new apartments will provide a safe and stable home for individuals, couples and families who are experiencing housing instability or homelessness. Residents will have access to social programs and Indigenous and cultural-based supports through a partnership between Right at Home Housing Society and NiGiNan Housing Ventures. The governments of Alberta and Canada jointly contributed $6 million for this project, which created more than 70 jobs.
The Grande Spirit Foundation hopes to soon send an application to the province to build another new seniors facility. If approved, the 24-unit self-contained senior’s building would go in Spirit River near where a 92-unit Designated Supportive Living Facility will also be built.
