Aspen Family

Aspen Family and Community Network Society (Aspen) serves people first, community always. Aspen caters to approximately 80% of Calgary communities, offering 20 different programs that support individuals, youth and families, and as well as assist them in building community. For the past 35 years, Aspen has been committed to advocating on behalf of thousands of single parents, immigrants, children, youth, and families both living in poverty and at risk of homelessness. We take pride in being a pioneering agency in Calgary, providing preventative services to families at risk of homelessness. Moreover, Aspen has been successful in implementing the largest case management program in the city for families moving out of homelessness. With a model of building sustainable futures, Aspen significantly reduces the strains on our society. We recognize that proactively preventing homelessness and assisting families and youth out of homelessness altogether is a much more cost-effective strategy than responding to the aftermath of social problems. Hence, building capacity and resilience by breaking down barriers is at the core of Aspen’s functions. Aspen adopts a unique methodology of approaching human experience and growth through a focus on social engagement and analytically measuring the impacts of each encounter.

About This Campaign

Thank you!

1,300 Calgarians attended the event on September 17. They cheered on 45 teams, including 13 new teams, from charities, public sector, and corporate Calgary. 

Thanks to your support, we raised over $107,000 to help people overcome poverty, help kids succeed, and build strong communities in Calgary and the surrounding area. 

Since its start in 2012, Plane Pull has raised over half a million dollars

Thank you to our presenting sponsor UPS Canada, and all our other sponsors, partners, participants, and volunteers, for helping make Plane Pull a success once again!
