One of the main social issues facing Victoria is the lack of affordable housing, especially for families. Fernwood NRG has responded to the challenge by building 10 three-bedroom market-based affordable housing units in Fernwood between 2006 and 2009. Four units were added in 2006 in the Cornerstone Building, and six units were added in 2008 at the Park Place Apartments on Yukon Street. Our organization continues to find new and creative ways to support low-income families and provide affordable housing within Fernwood.
We thank the City of Victoria for their support through a Strategic Planning Grant for our Affordable Housing Program.
