Founded in 1987 by psychiatrist, Dr. Mary Dumka, Community LAMDA Society is a registered charity overseen by volunteer operational Board of Directors. LAMDA provides residential accommodation and support services for adults with severe and persistent mental illness. Our contribution to the Calgary community is steady and reliable, and we are determined to explore its untapped potential for growth.
As we look into the future LAMDA’s priority is to maintain our effective practices. LAMDA’s supportive housing model is remarkably successful, and we are committed to sustaining our uniqueness and autonomy.
Community LAMDA is located and operates on the traditional territories of the peoples of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) First Nation tribes of the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Stoney Nakota First Nations tribes of Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley and the Tsuut'ina First Nation. The city of Calgary is also homeland to the historic Northwest Metis and to the Metis Nation of Alberta, Region 3.
The Community LAMDA Board of Directors is an operational board overseeing the day-to-day provision of accommodation and support for the tenants of the two apartment buildings.
