Forward Housing is a member of the Community Housing Affordability Collective (CHAC).

Forward Housing is part of the One Window initiative.

The goal of One Window is to develop a coordinated intake solution across non-market housing providers in Calgary.  One Window will ensure that Calgarians who need it, can gain access to affordable housing, in a more efficient way.

The One Window initiative is being guided by a Steering Committee comprised of 14 non-profit, non-market housing providers, community organizations, and the Government of Alberta. Clients, social service agencies and other stakeholders are also being engaged. The City of Calgary, a member of the Community Housing Affordability Collective (CHAC), is leading the initiative. This initiative is also part of CHAC’s Action Plan and The City’s Corporate Affordable Housing Strategy.
