The Road Ahead - The Road Ahead Society of Calgary was established in December 2000 in response to the needs of families with disabled children and adults. The aim is to support families in three broad areas: 1. The first is the establishment of a secure future in very practical ways, such as finances (trusts, estates and will planning etc.) and housing and home ownership. 2. To promotion and development of enduring circles of support, the facilitation of meaningful relationships – people who look out for the interests of the person in the way a family might. 3. To develop long term partnerships with foundations and companies in the Calgary area to build a sustainable future for our members.
