We are thrilled to see progress made on our Older Women’s Housing Project pilot in Beaconsfield. This four-home development is now well underway after some significant delays due to COVID-19. The slab is down, and work is continuing on site.

These beautiful homes, designed by Studio Bright, will provide an opportunity for women over 55 with modest savings (but not enough to buy a home of their own), to escape the private rental market and invest in secure and affordable housing. Older women are experiencing housing stress at record levels and this program can prevent women from reaching this point. Thanks to Gandel Philanthropy, Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation, Homes For Homes, Mercy Foundation, and the Ian Potter Foundation for making this project a reality.
