The Atangard Community Project (ACP) is a non-profit organization and community housing provider located in the heart of downtown Abbotsford. The ACP is a grassroots initiative that was created by a collaborative effort of friends, family and community working together to create an alternative living option that places an emphasis on relationships and community. The Atangard was created to be a place that would allow people to put time and energy into pursuing their passions, and to be a place that would inspire creativity and passion. Today, the Atangard is home to a group of young professionals and students that have been living together in an intentional community on the second level of the Fraser Valley Inn since September 2009. There are 19 rooms with private bathrooms, some with available double occupancy. Residents share a common kitchen area, dining room, lounge, and laundry facilities. The non-profit is managed by a volunteer board of directors who are also residents of the project and are seeking an Executive Director (residency not required) to help manage operations and plan for the future.
