Capital Campaign to End Homelessness

Capital Campaign to End Homelessness

The Taggart Parkes family helped kick-off the Shepherds of Good Hope Foundation’s capital campaign to end homelessness with a landmark $1M donation.

Being in the business of building homes and communities, the Taggart Parkes family is passionate about issues surrounding housing and being of assistance to people experiencing homelessness.

Chris Taggart, President of Tamarack Homes and Tartan Homes, and his wife, Mary Taggart, Editor in Chief of Ottawa at Home magazine, are chairing the campaign on behalf of the Shepherds of Good Hope Foundation.

“The Taggart Group, through the Taggart Parkes Foundation, is very excited to be supporting the Shepherds of Good Hope. Mary and I, co-chairs of the 216 Murray Project, want to help see this project finished. We are in the house building business. We believe, where there’s home, there’s hope,” remarked Chris Taggart at the kick-off of the campaign.

When completed, the building at 216 Murray Street in downtown Ottawa will be a multi-purpose supportive housing residence, and home to 48 residents. There will be drop-in programs and community meals available around the clock in this state-of-the-art facility.
