Introducing Aspen Place, a triplex in Kitchener, Ontario that will become home to three families as they transition to more independent living. Aspen Place will continue to provide housing for women and children who are working to move beyond 24/7 support and into more independent living while also maintaining some on-site support.
There is space to develop staff offices on site to ensure support workers are available to assist clients and provide support as needed. There is also an area which can be used as a shared community room to facilitate life skills groups and other programming for the clients who live on site.
Aspen Place was named after an aspen tree, which is known for growth and shelter. These trees never grow alone and are always connected to groups. Aspen, which means “shield”, is known for its protective qualities and is a resilient sign of strength and new life.
