On Thursday, July 11, Horizon Housing brought western festivities to residents with its 11th Annual Stampede BBQ.
Over 350 residents, partners, sponsors, and volunteers joined the Horizon team at Bob Ward Residence to enjoy fresh-off-the-grill burgers, entertainment, games and prizes. This year’s event also featured several speakers: Horizon’s CEO Martina Jileckova, MP’s Kent Hehr and Pat Kelly, Minister of Community and Social Services, Rajan Sawhney, Mayor Naheed Nenshi and Councillor Jeff Davison.
“At Horizon Housing, we want to offer more than just a roof. Providing quality homes and fostering strong relationships with the broader Calgary community means our residents are better equipped to live independently,” says Martina Jileckova, CEO of Horizon Housing. “Events like this bring people from diverse backgrounds together and can also help reduce stigma and social isolation that exists for the individuals and families we serve.”
