A huge thank you to CHTC!

Early supporters are critical for the startup phase of any dream. For TINSHS, this support was largely provided by the Community Housing Transformation Center (CHTC), enabling us to gain traction and make headway towards our vision of building seniors housing on Texada.

The Community Housing Transformation Center provides grants, tools and services to community housing providers across Canada to catalyze the creation of affordable housing.

In 2022, TINSHS received a 50,000 grant from CHTC. This funding allowed us to hire a Projector Director. Since then, the Project Director successfully secured funding from the Powell River Community Foundation for our website, BC Healthy Communities Plan H funding for our Texada Housing Needs Report and the Vancouver Foundation Recovery & Resiliency grant to support organizational and operational capacity for the next three years. She initiated and saw the completion of website development, attended community engagements, heavily supported the Housing Needs study, aided in the development of google workspace, assisted in strategy development and network building, and is currently establishing a LinkedIn presence.

CHTC’s contribution has payed dividends for advancement of our organization with the opportunities we have today. We are in a very different position now thanks to your support, and hope to pay it forward with the creation of affordable housing in our community!
