WHO ARE WE?
Bowser Seniors Housing Society (est. 2005) over 180 members, 65 of whom serve as volunteers for our many fundraising activities in support of building an affordable seniors housing facility in Bowser.
WHAT ARE WE ABOUT?
Our Hope, Wish, and Dream is to build Lighthouse Villa, an independent living complex of 22 mostly one-bedroom suites, in the Bowser village core. Many seniors who have lived in their homes for years may find themselves unable to take care of their property as they age, but they want to stay in their community. At the moment they are forced to leave the area, their friends, and familiar surroundings. Our vision is to change this scenario and provide a local choice for our seniors.
WE ARE MAKING PROGRESS!
Our construction documentation is 95% complete, our building site in Bowser is secured (pending lease revisions) and rezoned, and our development permit has been approved by the RDN. We have received confirmation of $2.2 million in initial funding and continue to work closely with BC Housing to move towards receipt of full project funding.
Helps to reduce the amount we will have to borrow and moves us closer to our goal of building Lighthouse Villa.
