Carrington Group of Companies is committed to building up the Edmonton community today for a better tomorrow.

Hope Builders

Hope Builders charitable program is an employee led charitable program, leading our industry together by giving back, increasing awareness & participating in our community.


In 2011 our employees started the program with a vision to give back to the community community through staff events such as fundraisers for various local charities in Edmonton. Over the last 10 years we have helped numerous not for profit organizations like Changing Futures Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, Heart & Stroke Foundation, Hope Mission, YESS, Berkley's Place, Sport Central, Santa's Anonymous, and many more worthy causes. Our staff volunteer to help plan, organize, and implement the events that raise funds and in-kind donations for these organizations.

Changing Futures Foundation


Building sustainable solutions to help others help themselves.

Changing Futures Foundation is a not-for-profit organization committed to creating partnerships and opportunities to help underprivileged or marginalized individuals and families work toward building their own sustainable, brighter future.

Our objective is to help provide a safe, secure environment, coupled with appropriate support systems, to create successful outcomes.


Expanding on his vision of building homes of hope to help those in our community who need a “hand up” not a “hand out”, in 2011 Ken Ferchoff, chairman of Carrington Group of Companies, created Changing Futures Foundation to ensure this important legacy will live on.

Working in partnership with community agencies, Changing Futures Foundation recognizes and understands the need for safe and attainable housing in our city and has a passion to help build strong, mixed and healthy communities in Edmonton. By avoiding the segregation of those who fall below a certain income level, the Foundation strives to diversify neighborhoods and create balanced communities, where everyone is given a chance to succeed.
