Our community is in a housing crisis
For many on the Coast, especially women and children, poverty is a reality. 55% of children living with single parents on the Coast are living below the poverty line. That is 1,100 children and their families, struggling every day. The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the vulnerability of thousands of our community members. Those at most risk are children, single mothers and women over 50. Often they struggle to meet the fundamental needs of safety, food and housing - things that most of us take for granted.Read more
Build a stronger, safer Coast for all
The Building Together development will include 34 units of affordable housing, crisis response, support and prevention programs - all in one location. These resources will be accessible to all Sunshine Coast community members and will play a critical role in the health and wellbeing of our entire community. Built on land we own in downtown Sechelt, our thoughtful design and community approach will revitalize our neighbourhood into a safe and welcoming area for all.LEARN MORE
Together we make change
BC Housing has selected us to build and operate the 34 affordable housing units that will occupy the top four floors of the new 6-storey building on our current site at 5638 Inlet Avenue, Sechelt; a total investment of $16 million. To make this project a reality, Sunshine Coast Community Services has committed to raising $7 million to ensure that all Sunshine Coast residents can access the many programs and services in the new purpose-built space.
