John, tenant, makes a gift to RESOLVE

From our 2015-2016 Report to Community.

John (pictured left) had a number of setbacks – including polio at age 14 and a plane crash at 28 that severely damaged his spine and legs – that left him penniless and in a wheelchair.

He was fortunate to eventually find an accessible, affordable and supported home with one of RESOLVE’s Partners 15 years ago. “It’s so convenient because of the accessibility features,” John says. “I can roll my wheelchair under the counter to wash dishes or put my stew in the microwave.”

John sees the hard work that goes into his building. He’s so appreciative of his home that he decided to give back what he could with a donation to the RESOLVE Campaign.

“There’s a real shortage of housing for people with limited mobility in Calgary,” John says. “I’m so grateful for my home here.”

I’m so grateful for my home here.
