Alberta invests $340,000 in Joey’s Home

Alberta invests $340,000 in Joey’s Home

EDMONTON – The Alberta government is investing $340,000 in Joey’s Home, a Winnifred Stewart Housing permanent supportive housing project for those with dementia-related challenges and intellectual disabilities.

The funding through the Affordable Housing Partnership Program will go toward creating five new units set to open in 2025 as well as towards renovating Joey’s Home Mindful Hearts Memory Care Centre, a two-storey home in north central Edmonton that will provide 17 specialized housing units.

The building is named after Joey Moss, a beloved Edmonton resident born with Down Syndrome who worked as an Edmonton Oilers and Edmonton Elks staff member for more than three decades and advocated for those with disabilities.

Joey’s Home opened in 2007 with a mission to help individuals with diverse abilities access the supports they need, a release said.  Moss, a long-time resident, passed away in 2020 at age 57.

“Through this funding, Joey’s Home will continue to be a safe and caring place for Albertans with diverse abilities to thrive. With this investment through the Affordable Housing Partnership Program, Joey’s home will be able to provide a home and supports to enrich the lives of Albertans and honour Joey’s legacy,” said Alberta Minister of Seniors, Community and Social Services Jason Nixon in the release.

“We are so grateful to the province for expanding access to more affordable housing options for Albertans and for sharing in our commitment to increasing levels of inclusion and independence within our community. This investment is critical to meeting the demand for affordable specialized housing like that offered at Joey’s Home. Diverse communities make for richer neighborhoods and this contribution enriches lives,” Winnifred Stewart Association CEO Emily Ruttan added.
