Aboriginal Housing Society Working to Build Homes and Bring Cultures Together

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The Aboriginal Housing Society is making major progress as they work to find homes for aboriginal people in Lethbridge.

Affordable housing developments in both north and west Lethbridge will be a little different from the usual projects the society works on however. While both will house aboriginal families, they will also be open to all other cultures.

Aboriginal Housing Society General Manager Boyd Thomas explained that they're hoping it can be used to improve cultural awareness and sensitivity, saying "There's a stigma on both sides that needs to be bridged or gapped". He added that when they get different groups living close to each other, it should start to wipe out some of the long held misconceptions on both sides.

He also noted that regardless of who lives in the units they will be helping the greater cause, as their rent will go back to the Aboriginal Housing Society to help fund future projects.

The north side units are expected to be ready as early as this February with the ones on the west side scheduled to open in June.
