CHF BC aims to inspire housing co-ops to be communities that promote and embody equitable access, opportunity, respect, and a sense of belonging for everyone.
Aging in place is the ability to continue to live in one’s own co-op home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, benefiting older members, their families and co-op communities.
As housing co-op members get older, they may face challenges that make it more difficult to continue to live safely in their units, to remain fully involved in their co-op communities and to know where to get support when they need it.
The benefits of aging in place are well-known, but co-ops may need help to support their valued aging members.
The 2SLGBTQIA+ community is a significant presence throughout housing co-operatives in British Columbia
CHF BC is committed to working with our members to ensure that the federations, and our member housing co-operatives, are safe spaces for 2SLGBTQIA+ people and their allies to fully self-express while feeling welcome and included.
