Presidents Post: Merry Christmas to you and yours

With holiday season just around the corner, I hope that many of our homeowners will have the opportunity to enjoy their spaces, and share their homes with family and friends. Our vision at AviUrban has always been to create a backdrop for life’s greatest moments through architecture and we therefore place great value on people being proud of where they live and feeling comfortable in the spaces they choose to call home.

With that said, it’s also a good time of year to remember those around us that don’t have all the comforts that we do, particularly those that have no place of their own to call home.

As part of the Homes by Avi Group of Companies, AviUrban is involved in the Resolve Campaign to End Homelessness in Calgary. It is an honour to participate, and an opportunity to give back to less fortunate members of our community that need our help most. With our city being such a magnet for growth there are undoubtedly considerable numbers of people that just aren’t able to achieve the bare minimum of success needed to live in a secure and predictable environment. With the Resolve campaign, there is a concerted effort to help change the status quo and do something about it. Ultimately we are homebuilders, so what better way to give back than to put roofs over the heads of those that need it.

That is just one way we are working towards a better Calgary. I am always interested to hear what others are doing, so if you are doing something innovative and effective, then let us know. Please also consider this time of year as a chance to make a change in someone’s life. To help the community that you choose to call home. Even if that’s as simple as putting a smile on someone’s face, or a meal on someone’s table. Every little bit makes a difference.

From our family to yours, enjoy the holidays, keep safe, and please remember how fortunate we are to call our place in the world home.

Merry Christmas,
