CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 6, 2014) - Today the Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) honoured the 2013 recipients of the Arthur R. Smith Awards (Awards) which recognize front-line staff and volunteers who exemplify excellence in providing housing with support to those at risk of or experiencing homelessness in Calgary. The Awards are made possible through the generous support of Mr. James Stanford.
Each individual and group receives a $2,000 award.
"You are to be commended for your hard work with and compassion for those you serve so well," says Mrs. Betty-Anne Smith, the widow of the late Arthur Smith, who will be presenting the awards to the recipients. "Arthur would have been proud of the great work being done by all those receiving awards and the many others who represent the front-line work that Arthur thought was so important."
