    Delta Housing Be Mine Society is pleased to report that the development of 10 homes reserved for individuals with intellectual disabilities at Evergreen Lane Apartments remains on schedule. The anticipated date for occupancy is set for the end of August and the first week of September 2024, marking an important milestone in our commitment to providing affordable and inclusive housing solutions.

    For members of the Delta Housing Be Mine Society (DHBMS), pertinent information regarding the application process will be made available by the end of June. We understand the importance of clarity and accessibility in this process, and we are dedicated to ensuring all interested parties have the necessary resources and support.

    Recognizing the unique circumstances of many DHBMS members, particularly those currently residing at home without rental references, Affordable Housing Societies (AHS) acknowledges the challenge of traditional application requirements. In light of this, AHS is prepared to accept Delta Housing Be Mine Society as a valid reference for apartment applicants, aiming to streamline the process and facilitate access to housing opportunities.

    These 10 homes stand as a testament to the power of collaboration and partnership.  We, Delta Housing Be Mine Society extend our gratitude to Affordable Housing Societies and the City of Delta for their unwavering support and commitment. Furthermore, partnerships with the Provincial and Federal governments have been instrumental in realizing this project, highlighting the collective effort to address housing needs within our community.

    As we move forward, we remain dedicated to our mission of providing inclusive and supportive housing solutions, fostering a community where every individual has the opportunity to thrive.

    For further inquiries or assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Housing affordability and the lack of housing options are high ranking concerns for many, how is Delta contributing to the solution?

    "With upcoming civic elections, voters should remember that municipalities shape the future of communities and the type of housing options that will be available decades into the future,” said Jill Atkey, CEO of BC Non-Profit Housing Association, in the news release.

    “While the challenges are clear, there are also solutions. British Columbia’s non-profit housing sector has the solutions and expertise to be an essential partner for local governments to help solve the housing crisis.”
