Meet the Organizations
Cosmos Community Disability Services Foundation
Cosmos Group of Companies is comprised of three organizations. Our group of companies has been offering services in and around Central Alberta for the past fifty years. Originally established as Cosmos Enterprises in 1972, this long-standing agency has evolved into a well-reputed provincial leader, and an integral part of Central Alberta’s community.
Our vision is to create meaningful opportunities that promote the personal wellbeing and community connectedness for persons with disabilities through volunteering, employment, community engagement and life skill development.
We take pride in our innovative services and lasting partnerships with local businesses, industry and government partners. We take an “any door is the right door” approach to delivering unique and diverse services to individuals who are under-represented in employment, volunteerism and community leadership roles.
Our mission is to work closely with our client group, government, employers, and community stakeholders to build a strong sense of community spirit and personal wellbeing for Albertans residing in Central Alberta.
United Way of Central Alberta
The United Way of Central Alberta’s Mission is “to improve lives and build community through engagement and mobilized collective action. Their vision is to create “a resilient and caring community where everyone thrives”.
The United Way of Central Alberta is a prominent funder of the Career Pursuits program at Cosmos. The Career Pursuit program supports individuals in overcoming barriers to employment and is made possible largely through the partnership with the United Way. As a funded agency of the United Way of Central Alberta, we recognize the importance of their mission and vision and wish to support their initiatives.
The Good Shepard Program
The Good Sheppard Donor Program is in honor and memory of Barb Sheppard, who donated her life’s work to serving others and making a difference in the lives of so many people in Central Alberta.
Provide immediate intervention or crisis mitigation support to ensure our most vulnerable people have the means to overcome barriers and or participate in meaningful opportunities to enhance their well-being.
All funds received go towards supporting programs, services, and resources to aid at-risk, vulnerable, or persons in crisis.
