WHO ARE WE?
Bowser Seniors Housing Society (est. 2005) has over 150 members, about 60 of whom serve as volunteers for our many fundraising activities in support of building a seniors housing facility in Bowser.
WHAT ARE WE ABOUT?
Our Hope,Wish, and Dream is to build Lighthouse Villa, an independent living complex in Bowser. 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!
To date, our architectural drawings (featuring 22 mostly one-bedroom suites) are 90% complete, we’ve secured a building site in Bowser, and we’ve hired a project manager We submitted a formal application for funding in September as per the provincial government’s Request for Proposals and received news on Nov 13 that our submission had been approved to proceed. We now look forward to working with BC Housing and learning about our next steps. Fundraising will continue.
YOUR SUPPORT helps to reduce the amount we will have to borrow, makes
the development more affordable for our seniors, and moves us closer to our goal of building Lighthouse Villa.
