The Lacombe Foundation is a public management body, under the Province of Alberta, with a mandate to provide affordable housing for seniors and low-income families in the area of Lacombe County. It is our hope that, through the programs we offer, we can help strengthen our communities and turn them into places anyone can call home.

In 2011, Lacombe Foundation partnered with The Bethany Group to assume management functions for the foundation while reporting to the Board of Directors.

The Lacombe Foundation provides affordable and seniors housing in Lacombe County:


The mission of Lacombe Foundation is to provide safe and affordable housing and support, dignity and quality of life for seniors and families in the communities of Lacombe County.
