Calgary Alternative Support Services Inc.
Calgary Alternative Support Services Inc., (CASS) was founded in 1988 to address the segregation, isolation and limited opportunities available to people with
disabilities. CASS enlists and develops human services professionals to support people to discover and contribute their unique strengths and talents. Our work is about making community connections. Whether it’s finding a place to live, getting a job, or connecting with opportunities for participation and learning, CASS serves people and helps to make the community accessible to everyone.
Through the opportunities and connections that CASS facilitates, citizen advocacy for diversity and inclusion is inspired. This is how CASS and the people we support strengthen community.

The Integrated Post Secondary Education Society of Alberta (IPSE)
New Heights is not just a school, but is a community dedicated to pioneering a bright future for individuals on the autism spectrum to live independent, confident, and purposeful lives. We offer a unique approach to learning and holistically support students through our Transition to Adulthood, Home and Community Support, Work Experience and Employment Programs. We fill in the gap in services by continuing to provide support for our students well into adulthood.
Our Employment Program is an individualized program that connects inclusive employers with outstanding candidates seeking paid employment from our student and new-graduate population. Our students are well prepared for employment by attending Job Preparation classes during class time and by volunteering their time in the community during Work Experience. The valuable, transferrable employment skills learned during their time in school help them to become successful and fulfilled employees.
