On Wednesday, June 19th, AHC held an open house followed by its 24th Annual General Meeting. The event saw more than 140 participants come out to take a tour of the building, learn more about our programs and supports, meet many of our staff, volunteers, community and board members and enjoy some refreshments.
During this past year, we have provided support to more than 10,000 individuals, including families, youth and children, through our capacity-building support, programs and services. This could not be done without the leadership and commitment of our dedicated staff and network of 300+ volunteers.
We have also built meaningful relationships with various stakeholders and partners in small towns to expand our support to the underserved newcomer population groups in those towns. We have been part of a community that has played a leadership role to make Edmonton and Alberta a better place for all of us. We have also expanded to close to 50 program sites including 33 schools. Most recently, we have begun providing supports in small-town centres including Cold Lake and Camrose..
We are thankful to our funders, partners and stakeholders for their continued support and guidance to make 2018 a successful year for us and we strongly believe that with their ongoing support we will be able to take on new challenges and help more people to successfully integrate into society.
