On Saturday, April 23 the Houston Housing Society celebrated the grand opening of their new six-plex seniors’ housing facility. These new, accessible units will support the community’s seniors who want to downsize and age in place while increasing Houston’s housing stock.

“The demand for affordable senior’s housing has never been greater in Houston as we have over 90 people on the waiting list for our housing complex,” said Shannon Clarke, treasurer, Houston Retirement Housing Society. “The new six-plex will help alleviate some of this demand, and we appreciate the funding from Northern Development Initiative Trust that made this project feasible.”

The District of Houston received a $60,000 Northern Housing Incentive grant from Northern Development to support the construction of four two-bedroom units and two one-bedroom units.
