WELCOME TO THE FOOTHILLS ADVOCACY IN MOTION WEBSITE

The Foothills Advocacy In Motion (AIM) Society would like to officially introduce Gerry McCallum as their new Executive Director. Gerry is a long serving member of the AIM Society, having fulfilled the role of Manager of Employment & Day Services in the High River branch for the last 14 years, and brings with him to this post a total of 30 years experience working with adults with disabilities in both High River and Calgary. Should you wish to contact Gerry, you can reach him by phone at 403-652-4161 ext 223 or via email at gerry@faims.org.

Gerry is taking the reins from long time AIM Executive Director Vince Kimura, who retires at the end of March 2016. Over his 25 year relationship with AIM, Vince’s wealth of knowledge, strong business acumen and extremely kind heart has endeared him to the individuals and families supported by the three branches of AIM. His highly effective leadership and vision has set the Society in a great spot, and all those involved in AIM are greatly indebted to the efforts of Vince over these past two and a half decades.

 THE ADVOCACY IN MOTION SOCIETY

The Foothills Advocacy In Motion Society offers supports to adults with developmental disabilities who reside in the municipal districts of Foothills and Wheatland County in the province of Alberta.  The AIM Society offers support in the areas of Home Living, Respite, Outreach, Employment Placement and Community Access through branch locations in High River, Okotoks and Strathmore.

Since our inception in 1980, the AIM Society has continued to evolve and mature.  We understand and celebrate the fact that people with developmental disabilities have tremendous capabilities and potential.  In each person resides an array of talents and gifts.  Our role is to find a suitable environment in which these talents can manifest themselves to the benefit of all parties involved.  Often all that is required is an opportunity to demonstrate these strengths and abilities.

The AIM Society has forged many long lasting relationships with businesses in the communities of High River, Okotoks and Strathmore.  Partnerships have developed with many individuals and companies, all whom we consider “Friends of AIM”.  Opportunities have arisen from these relationships that have added to the lives of many people supported by the AIM Society.
