Thirty more Calgarians will transition out of homelessness when they move into their new home in Bowness, thanks to Jayman BUILT. Jayman, in partnership with Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF), HomeSpace Society and the RESOLVE Campaign, celebrated the opening of The Clayton on August 8th. The building provides affordable housing with on-site supports (provided by Calgary Alpha House Society) to 30 formerly homeless Calgarians. This new building takes its name from Alvin Clayton (A.C.) Westman, Jayman’s founder.

The Clayton was made possible through an unprecedented joint commitment by the Government of Canada (through the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) and the Government of Alberta to provide affordable housing with on-site support services. This project was also made possible through the generous commitment of philanthropic donors, including The Clayton’s visionary builder, Jayman BUILT, and the financial support of the City of Calgary.

The Clayton is the seventh purpose-built apartment constructed by Calgary homebuilders who have each committed to constructing a building for CHF and our housing collaborator HomeSpace Society, through the RESOLVE Campaign.
