CREB realtors award $75k in grants to non-profits

The CREB Realtor Community Foundation has awarded grants to Inn from the Cold Society, Discovery House Family Violence Prevention Society, and Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta.

Each non-profit will receive $25,000 to help repair and renovate existing housing and shelter facilities to keep people housed in their communities.

“We take pride in supporting these non-profit organizations on behalf of our local Realtors and seeing the positive impact it makes in our community,” said Catherine Chow, Chair of CREB Realtor Community Foundation. “It’s inspiring to see our community come together, working towards enhancing housing and shelter-related solutions for those who need it most.”

According to a news release from CREB, Inn from the Cold Society will use the funds for renovations at their Journey House, recently transformed into an affordable housing complex. Repairs include replacing a retaining wall and repairing balconies, enhancing safety for residents during crises.

Discovery House Family Violence Prevention Society will improve their shelter’s interior, mechanical and electrical systems. These enhancements will provide a safer and more comforting environment for clients healing from trauma.

Ronald McDonald House Charities Alberta will use the grant to renovate nine family suites at the Calgary House.
